From memory I think 1 quintale was about Eur 50 - 100kg's of properly seasoned fire wood, you could get a lot of quintale's out of a mature tree but it wont be seasoned. Personally I would treat every tree I own as a valuble commodity casue I have a couple of stuffa's and woods chaeper than gas. If you have fire / log burner I would keep the wood for myself.
