I also talked to my neighbour about this, who is a hay farmer and owns 207 acres of land. A lot of his land is still wooded and there's more trees on there that he can ever burn in his stove. He told me we could work something out regarding getting (buying) trees from his land. He'll probably mark trees so I can fell, limb and buck them, then bring them home to split.
This gives me the opportunity to get used to cutting firewood and get a feeling of how much wood I would need for a year, for myself. Then I can (re)consider getting my own small woodlot. My idea of having my own woodlot also was to sell firewood to others.
Part of my own land is also wooded and has quite some huge birch trees on them. At least of what I can see from a distance since I haven't actually walked down there myself. This would probably give me a few years worth of firewood. I'm not sure if I want to clear that part, I think there's a lot of deer and other wildlife living there...

It there any effort put in for replacement trees, so it does not become bare land after time passews?
