I think that this has been addressed somewhere on here, but I have spent the better part of an hour looking for a post that pertains to it, and havent turned up anything.
I have spent the last few evenings getting the wood stacks in order, counting the cords that I have, and looking over my receipts for all expenses to harvest the wood. The fuel bill is scary. I charged $50 a rick last year for mixed stuff, and by my calculations I am going to have to charge close to $60 a rick to make the same profit as I did last year. I am wondering a number of things, but do you reckon that the higher cost of wood is going to drive off a lot of customers? I know you will have those that rely 100% on wood for heat and they dont have a lot of choice, but I had a lot of customers last year that burned because they like a fire, found it cheaper than electric etc. I wondering if those customers are going to refrain from wood heat this year.
I hate to sit on all this wood too long!
