Best dang wood cuttin' season I've had since...

No-really man! At first I was depressed and had to scrap. Suddenly, out of nowhere all the wood I need for the winter and then some appeared as if in a dream.

Even the dreaded illegal woodcutters, who infest my area every season, did not find my stash.

I was able to back up within feet of the trees, and all the limbs were above ground.

It's a mix of Pinyon and Jeffrey.

I was in wood heaven with my Makita, the best saw, pound for pound. I make fast work of it, pile my limbs and make a clean break. I don't even use gas to heat my house in winter and haven't for years. The Pinyon burns hot and clean and that is all I use. Jeffrey is good, too. I love lodgepole and it is similar to Pinyon. My favorite is Bristlecone. Such a nice smell.

I hope those guys are still in business. I went to get one last load before the season ended in my zone. Not much blew down all summer. Good luck and get that wood in now! This will no doubt be a long, cold one.

Finally got ahold of Buckin Bundles yesterday. Was told that everything they have is green. Still looking for a reliable source that isn't $300 for half a cord.

Help! The phone # for Buckin Bundles has been disconnected and with this cold spell, my 2 cords is dwindling. Does anyone have any recommendations for another reliable, good firewood delivery? How about DB's Firewood from Crowley? I've heard good things about them, but it's $460 a cord.

G&S Firewood in Mammoth was reliable for us. $160 for 1/2 cord mixed delivered.
Getting a full cord of pine from Snowman this summer as I like how pine burns.
Love our wood burning stove now. Awesome to have this in our condo :)

DB's sells hard wood you need soft wood to get it to burn.

And what does Vons ML charge for its bundles?
I lost track what groceries are charging for a quick (wimpy pallet's worth of soft pine) campfire. Ridic.

I suggest a half hour in nature w mr bowsaw skien.

^ Don’t know, but he’d need a firewood permit to chop down wood in the forest. Get one at the ML Welcome Center (760 924-5500).
