Do you cut your own wood or buy it?

When I was growing up we had a fireplace.My dad and I and my sister would go to the land of a friend my Dad knew and cut our own wood

If I could, I'd cut my own!

We have a wood furnace, does that count?  We burn 18 to 20 face cords of wood a year.  We buy a half semi-load of 8 ft. logs and cut & split it ourselves.

We have a gas fireplace now so don't need to cut any wood.  When we had a wood burning one in a prior house, we generally cut our own wood.

we have an outdoor wood stove or some call it boiler our outdoor furnace..... we buy a pulp truck load each fall (12 cord) and cut and split it ourselves.  this lasts us from early October to the end of May and even then we usually have a large row left over we paid $750.00 for our wood this fall so i guess that comes out to what...... $93.75/mo for heat.....

i filled our LP tank this fall and for a 1/2 of a tank it came to 358.00, now that would be once a month for us..... i hate the pain of the wood sometimes but i am glad i am not making the rich richer......

 We have a wood burner and cut our own wood. My parents and 2 of my siblings also burn wood so we have Saturdays in Oct/Nov that we all get together and cut wood. Actually its the tree tops left from where my dad sold timber.

Our neighbor also burns with wood and we go half with him on what we cut and split. He has the tree tops and we have the log splitter. Works out well for everyone because we actually get most of our firewood from him and just end up helping family get theirs.

 No place to cut our own, so we buy it for the fireplace.
