High Calorific value - perhaps I should burn the OH chocolate... same reply as else where
We pay about 140 euros for good olive wood (not roots) which is then dumped and not stacked.
I am told that olive wood is the best as it has a high calorific value when burned. Other woods may burn faster but do not give out as much heat.
It's normally sold in cubic metres (metro cubico). A normal trailer load is about a cubic metre. I bought a mixture of wood, olive, pine, roots and other stuff. It cost me €70 for the cubic metre. I have no complaints with the wood we get. We have bought the same wood for years from the same guy.How much should I be paying for a trailer load ( 1 Tonne - ish) of leña?
My cubic metre came in a large van. My space for the logs was over filled. I get a good deal. I have dealt with the local guy in our village for years. I think if you find a good local supplier, you will get good service and a good price.I pay €100 per tonne (the best way to buy) which is all over 1yr old when we get it in Feb/March and then sits in our log store until we use it. Our guy delivers and stacks.
Buying by the 'notional cubic metre" can be a bad deal because of the variations in quantity depending on how it is loaded in the trailer. If it is neat and tidy there's more wood than if it is higgledy-piggledy.
