I never had a lot of money, however I have always been blessed with just enough to meet my needs. I also have been very blessed with a strong back and the ability to organize to get thing done.
As the cost of fuels like oil, gas and hydro skyrocket, there are more then just a few that have to make choices between food, rent, medication and other needs for the sake of heat. For without heat there is little chance of survival. For my area here where winters can be from mid Nov to mid April ( if lucky) and temperatures ranges of -30, heat is a necessity, period. This area is also greatly based on wood stoves and out door wood furnaces, as I am one that is on one, so the main source of heat is burn wood. This means more then just make a phone call for delivery of fuel or just turning a thermostat up. Wood has to be processed, cut, split, staked and placed. This is a lot of work, for some just to much.
Now that I am set up for getting this process done and after seeing just how many not only need help but emergency heat/firewood I have set up an area to get this done and provide some help for those that truly need it.
My goal is to process two double loads of logs , cost is about $1800-$2200 a load, fuel for the saws , splitter and delivery is around $500 then all the labor . I am providing all the tools and supplies along with area as well as keeping it plowed out in the coming winter. I am asking for some help with the cost of the logs. If I can get $3000.00 towards this I believe I can do the rest.
Any amount will help or even stop by and give a hand with the work.
