I would like to know how many people burn wood in SW MO for a heat source? Is there wood suppliers in this area? If so, how expensive is it? How much per cord or pick up load?
Our family is moving from NW MN next month to SW MO, and we use a lot of wood here as our main source of heat. Anyone with any info or thoughts please share, and I want so a BIG thanks to all the people that take the time to answer questions and for sharing their information on this forum, it is a GREAT place to learn!

If you are willing to cut your own, I think there are a number of people around who are willing to let you cut up tops from mill trees for very lttle (if any) cost. But that is tough work in my limited experience. There are a number of folks around selling firewood. The cost varies widely - gas prices last year seemed to really increase wood costs. I don't burn wood, but I notice ads in the classifieds of the Springfield News Leader when the weather cools.

Around my area it is stupid not to burn wood.In my little Stove it likes Small Wood,so I get Slab Wood from the Sawmill for free if I cut it,if they cut it its $14 a Pickup load.

But if I have anyone sell me Wood it runs anywhere from $75-$150 a Cord.

Default Hillman is right

The wood mills are the place to go, they'll sell it to you cheap.

We burn wood in a small wood stove and I actually cook on it when I have a fire going. It makes the best biscuits! I love cast iron cooking. We cut our own wood from the 25 acres we have. It was logged pretty heavily a few years ago but there are LOTS of downed trees still here to cut up.

Most any farm store will have wood stoves on hand as well as the parts for putting up your chimney. Look for an Orscheln Farm Store, they are a pretty good source for anything you are looking for. And if they don't have it, they can tell you who might have it. Or do a web search for wood stoves and you will find lots of answers.

I want to get a regular Kitchen style wood cooking stove/oven in the future.

There is a lot of wood for sale right now due to the massive tree damage from this winter's ice storms. Of course it isn't seasoned yet, but prices should be fairly low.

Thank you for the information, we are moving to Missouri in May and wanted to look into putting up a wood stove when we get our house built.

Rolla has a dealer that sales nice stoves but the going thing in our area is the outdoor wood furnaces that heat your house and water. On the other hand look at rolla net's free classified and they have really cheap stoves in there from people that are up-grading

We use a fireplace on our main floor with an insert/blower. It will heat the whole upstairs of around 1600 sq. feet. Then in our basement, we have a wood stove that will heat that (and upstairs!) very nicely but we mostly focus on the upstairs as downs stairs is an extra bedroom/living room. It was nice to have this summer when the power went out due to the storms. We use propane heat, and that can be pricey!!
