    Firewood price.

    Have recently cleared trees from a parcel of land. The trees are mainly Ash and Beech. We have limbed them and removed the trash and they are sitting in two large piles stacked by digger. There would be approx four forty foot wagon loads. My question is this, how much a ton is this worth?
