Fire wood delivered to Adliswil house

Hello,

Was wondering if there was such a thing of fire wood being delivered to your house, we live in Adliswil, during the colder months?

Kind regards C

Thanx for your reply, I will contact them tomorrow as we are running low and I'm fed up carrying the logs from the town!

Re: Fire wood delivered to Adliswil house

Firewood is usually bought by the cubic metre and by length (eg 30/40/50cms etc). A cubic metre of wood is called a Ster in German.

You should be able to specify the kind of wood and how long it's been dried (eg 3 years)...

Re: Fire wood delivered to Adliswil house

Find a local farmer to deliver a lot in bulk if you have a place to store, like in the cellar or around the garage. The prices the first guy is charging is robbery ! Here in canton of Vaud for wood cut and delivered but not stacked up, either 33cm or 50cm cuts is between Chf 130-200 per cubic meter (stere) for good hard wood, beach etc.

Re: Fire wood delivered to Adliswil house

Try contacting your gemeinde's forestiere as well. Our gemeinde sells sters of wood each year. If you're prepared to cut and haul it yourself it's cheaper.

Re: Fire wood delivered to Adliswil house

Our Commune (GEmeinde) owns vast areas of forest and sells wood by the stère (cubic metre) - it can deliver for extra, and cut to desired size, 50cm or 33cm, etc- and can sell fresh wood to store for next year, or 1 year/2 year old wood for use this year. Costs depends on all the above (a mix of ash and beech) Basic price:

75 CHF new 80 CHF dry. Too far for you OP, but perhaps for anyone in NE/VD- probably much cheaper than in town.
