Any wood suppliers near me?
« on: April 25, 2019, 05:54:07 PM »

Hello - going out on a limb here (pun intended), but does anyone know any lumber companies that might deliver entire truck loads of wood to the central Illinois area?  I've spent a good amount of time scouring the internet and I've found a bunch of tree trimming services that I've reached out to and offered my place as a free drop off for their wood.  Loads are few and far between with most of them, however, and I'd really like to just get an entire 9-11 cord trailer dumped (even 2 or 3 would be fine  :) ) - even at cost and even if I have to cut it myself.  I'd be interested in pulp wood/green wood, tops, etc...  But I can't find anything nearby.  Best I've come up with are landscaping suppliers that want to sell individual face chords at $80+ and similar prices.  Buying a bulk load is cost effective for me as opposed to burning gas, but buying individual face chords split and ready to go isn't.

Thanks for any ideas.

I don't know your area but here in SW VA a logger will often be willing to dump a load of tree length pulpwood at a reasonable price. Are there sawmills there local you could get contact info from?
