    My buddy has alot of hickory in log form and I can get a 2000lb trailer load for 75$, it's good solid and seasoned/ ends checked for 1to 2 yrs now...
    I saw no sign of bugs and all bark is gone.
    Thoughts?
    Good deal?
    It's for an owb...

    Thats probably half a cord of wood at most. Probably a little less. Logs unless standing dead when cut wont be truly seasoned. There is still a lot of water in log form. It will dry out pretty quick when split though. Do you know the volume your trailer holds? I am much better at estimating volume. FWIW hickory is one of the heaviest woods in north America.

    I looked up hickory on " engineering toolbox" and estimate it to be in the 4000lb/ cord range, so 150$/ cord.
    I don't plan on splitting it b/ c it's small enough to fit in my owb( cut into 2' lengths)
