    Not sure what firewood prices are your way, but if that's a 15cu yd truck the math at 180 cu ft per cord loosely thrown works out to 2 1/4 cord. At $ 300.00 that's not a bad price.

    I don't know what the exchange rate is right now but I'd think thats a fair price.
    Depending, of course, on what their definition of softwood is. (I'm not paying for pine, poplar or aspen.)

    $300 CAD is roughly $240-250 USD
    Usually the sellers here sell "mixed hardwood " for about $250 a cord and it will include some poplar/aspen, but not pine.
    Pine (and hemlock) is usually sold separate and is now up to $150/cord.
    But that's here.

    Depends on what the "mix" is and what they charge for delivery.

    Looks like 2 cord.

    That’s what I’d call a 10 yard truck with about 12 yards in it
