I believe in a previous thread someone had commented that firewood in MT is expensive. I'm wondering what a cord of firewood costs in your area? And does that include delivery, if it's already split, etc. Just wondering...

in the Mini Nickel I see some ads as follows: one has premium split fir for $135. a cord and another has split and deliverd for $175.
I've never paid more than $75 for a cord but I didn't buy any last year so I'm guessing $90 might be about an average price for the Butte area. Other areas seem to differ.

Default firewood

It depends on where in MT you are - at least that's what we found.

Thanks for your replies. We haven't made the move to MT yet, but we're trying to do a little research online to get as much information as we can so we can be fully prepared for such a big move.
Anyone else from western or southwestern MT have any firewood info? Any response is helpful.

Search on city newspapers for W and SW MT, then go to their websites and search the classifieds. Also Mini-Nickel, a weekly freebie paper with ads for the region, has an online version. Search for and check that as well. I believe Mini-Nickel is out of Helena while The Adit is the same thing for Butte area, and I can't remember the equivalent for Bozeman area. These free papers usually have ads for firewood in them, at least in the paper versions.

I just ordered a cord of firewood and it's costing me $100 so prices have gone up since the last time I got wood. That price is for rounds, not split.

Thanks again ladyflyfsh for the update.
It seems most people of MT have several sources of heat from a lot of the comments I've read in this forum. I imagine these folks are living outside of city or town limits. Am I correct in this thinking?

bjb123,
Not necessarily...many people combine wood heat with gas or electric to save money, whether in town or not. Wood is still by far the cheapest way to heat and in my opinion, the warmest too.

Default Firewood

In the Helena area you can get a $5 permit and go cut your own firewood if you are so inclined. Not sure if all areas have that option or not.
