Olderpunk...I think you will find the cubic volume in a quote 6/7€ smaller bag unquote will calculate as VERY expensive  & the supermarkets do run out when the snow comes down & demand is high. Far better to buy in juillet/août when the logs are dry so you can stack them ready for use & continue seasoning for a few more months.

We are in Rostrenen and have just ordered some. Quoted 205€ for a cord. Didn't have any last year, but the year before it was 190€ a cord. Been getting off the same person for at least the last 5 yrs.

Thought we might have been lucky-but  Barty's right not in this area--and posh loads ,- that would be Braf!!

I saw this advert pop up on this site, maybe they are near you.

Says most areas covered but along long way from me!

Thanks for the posts- gives me an idea at least. So 6/7 euros for a smallish bag in a supermarket isn't that excessive by the looks of things.

Hello,

 A stere is a volumetric measurement and is variable depending on the space between the split logs as smaller logs reduces the air space.

A stere made of 1m long split logs = 1m3

When made up of 50cm logs = .8m3

And if made up of 33cm logs = .7m3

Finally for 25cm logs = .6m3

So a cord is 3 x the chosen stere.

If it helps generally the price is 53-56€ per stere cut & split in either 300 or 500mm lengths delivered for 80% oak & 20% other.

A chord (around here in 35) is 3 stere, a stere is 1mcube, cost is €170 cut to 30cm and delivered.

Quality is good and burns fine, seems to be a mix of types.
