I sold some green hickory chips last year at $2.00 for a one gallon zip-loc
baggie. It was an experiment with a borrowed chipper and I believe that
much over $2.00 would not have sold here in Missouri. However, fruitwoods
should get a higher price, possibly $3.00 for a similar bag.
I don't think most users have a good feel for how many wood chips the
average person would use in a season. If I had pursued it further, I would
have packaged in one quart baggies and sold them for $1.00 each.

Subject: [Market-farming] Apple Smoke Wood
The most profitable part of my business is firewood. Someone recently
asked me about apple smokewood. On my property we have a number, maybe 20
or so, old apple trees. One side of me would like to try to get them going
again, even if only for wildlife food. The other side of me doesn't mind
cutting them down, chunking them up, drying the wood, and selling it for a
lot more than I can get for firewood. Does anybody else cut up aromatic
woods for smoking purposes? What sort of price should I charge?
