While it does make great firewood, the handling is not worth it if you want to sell it and get people to pay what your time is worth.Here is a new question for everyone. Does anyone market apple firewood? I am in the process of a several year project clearing a 4 acre old pasture on the farm which started growing up 50 years ago. I am chipping brush and cutting and selling ash and maple . But there are numerous wild apple trees which are very time consuming to process. I have made one cord of firewood for sale. I also make 5 cords from my woodlot for myself as well as 8 cords for sale to neighbours.all beech and sugar maple.
Here is the thing. Apple trees require at least three times the time and effort to process. Not worth it at the usual firewood price.
Does anyone sell apple at premium price and how do you do it? I heard it is valued for its fragrance and smoking properties.
It would likely be easier to sell as smoker wood at higher dollars for smaller amounts.
