I always make sure to get some firewood off of Craigslist in August/September. That way, the prices don't go up too high, and you have time to cure it. No matter what assurances are made as to the wood being cured, you can almost guarantee that anything off of Craigslist is going to come green.

Try calling different tree services/arborists. That is the source of most firewood, as far as I know. They are probably down to only green wood by the point, though.

It is supposed to take a year if you do it right, but if you spread the wood about good enough and keep it covered in the rain, then a few months is more than enough.

You can also bake it in the oven at 250F if you're really desperate for dry wood.

Don't know if he's still there, but in between Wake Forest and Youngsville there is a guy on the East side of 1. Last two years he's had a giant pile sitting out front next to a vegetable/fruit stand. Cost $25 for one row across the pickup truck up the the bed hight.

i recently got some from goodwin's tree service. it was pretty cheap, well seasoned, although it was slightly less than the 1/2 cord i ordered. but, the cheap price made up for it.

Definitely check out craigslist and make sure it is seasoned hardwood. Prices vary pretty widely, so look around and make sure you're getting a decent deal.
