    Sid P search in google maps for tree service near you. That's how I found my wood supplier

    I use a miter saw a lot but I also have the alligator saw - so far so good with it. I do a lot of landscaping and pruning at my house with it and used it after one of the hurricanes to cut up downed branches in my yard.

    I don't use a stick burner. Would any old appropriate type of firewood do? I've bought wood at Vessel Inc. 40 W 234 Fabyan Pkwy, Elburn, IL 60119. Haven't been there for a couple years, but they had a self-service yard (I was buying for the fire place) and they had the wood sorted by type, though I can't remember all types available, I know there was oak, and maybe cherry and hickory, as well as "mixed." They were pretty reasonable too.

    I cut my own. So I do not deal with suppliers. But, landscaping companies are a great place to look if you are looking to do the same. I realize that is probably way more work than you want to put into it, but it is a great way to ensure you know what you are getting.

    I use a miter saw to cut the pieces to KBQ length as soon as I have them split to fireplace size from the large rounds. The Miter saw is a lot easier to use than the "Alligator Loper" I have one originally, it broke with in a few months. Too cheap to handle the work load I guess.

    Yeah, honestly, I can't say recommend this. Mine broke pretty soon after getting it and the C-60. (Few months) They are really only rated for 4-inch pieces, so you tend to be a little limited there as well. I am not trying to rain on your parade or anything like that, just sharing my experience.

    I now use a Bosch Miter saw that I got from my father when he updated his shop. Which is easier to use, faster and I think, a little safer.

    I get my Pellets online, and from Costco.
    Sorry, can't help.
    But with power outages, charcoal and stick burners are sounding better with each passing storm.
