Hi Red... I get mine from Benevent.. don't know how much you usually pay but at Benevent it is 51 euros a stere cut to 33cm and delivered. Not the cheapest but seems to be an average price. The wood is usually all oak and beech and burns well.. I have asked around locally and although there are a few small time suppliers they are not much cheaper or charge a premium to deliver anything other than very local. (I am 14km from Benevent).  Also the wood seems of variable quality elsewhere.

Sorry I can't help any more. If you do find a cheaper supplier that would deliver my way (near St Goussaud) then I would be interested in the details.

Anyone else want to post the price they pay ????

Hi.

I have just collected my years wood. It comes on 1m3 oak pallets, its all oak, anything from logs to kindling offcuts, no bigger than 50cm.
I payed €40 a stere, but I did collect it. They deliver around La Souterraine. Its all offcuts from a supplier of oak planks to make Cognac barrels, one of only 2 suppliers in france.

Hi Folks
Ours logs have over the last eight years always been from our woods on the Estate!.We always log the dead trees and these burn very well if cut and logged when dry.This year we have been given permission by our Dutch friends to harvest wood from their woods next to our own, so we have a secure supply for a few more years yet.
I think Blakevine got her's from a local wood supplier here in the Correze and the cost was 50 euro's a stair delivered so your price's seem to be about average for cut and delivered.Oak,Beech and silver birch being a very good mix.
I must say it's quite a sight to see the love of my life felling trees with her chain saw, this afternoon she brought three down in one go.What a crash that was!. Now all we have to do is log them and get them stored before the rain at the weekend.
Simmo in the Correze (Timber sweet heart!)

Red... mine takes 33cm logs.. the 51 euros a stere I quoted was for that size delivered. They are a bit cheaper for 50cm logs as there is less work involved for them... no help to you though as I saw you need the smaller logs as well.

There is always wood for sale in , what I persume is the local council parks and gardens dept, in Gueret. Its on the SPA road, does anyone have any info about it, sorry to be vague.Exclamation

As a matter of interest, how many cordes does it take the average house to get through a winter, we are moving over after the winter so it will give me an idea for next year.

We have 2 woodburners. One is on from about 5 in the morning to 10 at night, most days. The other is only on occasionally when it is really cold, and then only for a couple of hours here and there.
We usually work on an average of 6m3 (6 steres) for most years, depending on how long the winter is. Bear in mind that my OH doesnt like to be cold, which is a bit of an understatement, as anyone who has entered our furnace will know.
We also run our central heating on low all the time for the upper floors.
