    I live on the northeast side of Indianapolis.I am looking for rounds for splitting for heat for my house . If any one has any hardwood rounds no bigger than 19" and no longer than 19" long . The sooner the better. If you could sell by the truck or by the trailer please get a hold of me. I would appreciate communication on this matter. Thank you, Drop and would be best!

    Lebanon, PA is about 60 miles (97 km) northeast of where I live in Pennsylvania. Indianapolis is in another state (Indiana) which is about an 8 hour drive west from where I am.

    We have folks from all over the world reading this forum, what makes you think only people in Indianapolis would see your post?

    Anyone see the indi500 the other day? I wanted that driver to rip the head off the other guy after the crash but all he did was share a few frank words with him. Bring back the biff.

    Well, you're posting on a site that has world wide reach, populated by people who love to give good hopefully helpful advice to like minded other people with a common bond. Sometimes even though it is general advice it is also helpful.

    Perhaps you should post on a local craigslist or facebook marketplace site - the percentage of people on here who are from Indianapolis is likely pretty low.

    Around here it’s usually either log length for around $100-$125 a cord or split for $225-$250 a cord. I don’t know anyone that sells unsplit rounds, especially only certain size diameters. If they did I imagine it’d be around $200 a cord as most of the work is still done, (cutting down trees, bucking into firewood lengths, delivering to customer), and the rounds are harder to handle than splits and can’t pack as tightly in a truck. OP, how much are you expecting to pay per full cord?

    Yes If you want to pay 75.00-a rick which seems kind of expensive for the Summer.
