A rick sells for about 60 bucks, plus delivery. Stacking would be extra. (Ya know, making a rick out of a pile of logs).

Birch logs would be free, because they are crap as firewood.
Cord wood is usually cut to 16 inches here so 3 layers deep, 4 feet tall, 8 feet long.
resurrection comes
not from iron nails and battered bodies,
but from the pungent warmth
of rich soil and rotting leaves
where dry seeds sprout
and grow toward the sun.
