I recently located to Seattle and am having a hard time finding someone to deliver firewood for reasonable price. The 2 places I tried to call seem flaky as in phone is always busy and they don't really seem interested in any new business. I am looking to get 1 cord delivered and stacked to Seattle. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I don't know if the link I'll give will work or not but if not, put "firewood" into the search feature over at craigslist and it will give you dozens of parties that are selling it.

seattle-tacoma craigslist > for sale / wanted: search for "firewood"

There are also commercial outfits that you can order from but they are usually more expensive.

Also check the classified section of local papers and the Little Nickel. I've seen some ads there too.

Like above posts indicated, you shouldn't have any problem finding wood, but nobody is going to want to stack it for you. That takes too long unless you're going to pay them to do it - most would expect to just dump it at your location.

Also possibly say you'll pay cash and they'll be more responsive.

The only other thing I can think of is possibly location... Some areas of Seattle can be a trek.

good luck!

Get a forest service wood permit, a pick up rig and a decent chainsaw and go get it out of the woods.
Just joking, the newsparer classifieds should have a few wood vendors advertising. Many wood supliers run out toward the middle of winter, at least that's what seems to happen here. I bought a full cord of split lodgepole for $75.00 about a month ago then I moved so I gave it all to a neighbor. Look at the fence I built with permited wood. The tamarack shakes were from a firewood permit and the posts and poles are lodgepole and were from a post and pole permit. Now ya all know why I have a messed up back !

I really should clarify here - Rickers from Montana and his woodcutting stories are from back there as well.

That is a nice looking fence Rickers.

I don't think any forests near here allow you to get a cutting permit, other than christmas trees.
If you go over the cascades you can get permits in other counties in WA.

I just bought some good wood, $700 for 3 chords, it is getting pretty spendy.

Bumping this thread now that it's cold.

I'm looking for a place nearby the city where I can go pick up small quantities of seasoned wood. 1/3 to 1/2 cord - around 50 cubic ft worth.

Anyone have a good source that isn't insanely priced? The stuff I've been finding on craigslist isn't great quality.
