I just got off the phone with a guy that has a small sawmill and would be interested in clearing out the huge pines on my property. He will come take a look to make sure it is worth his time and then hopefully he will take down the big pines and remove them. He doesn’t have a way to deal with the stumps but that is ok. I will take them into account when placing buildings and overtime they will decompose. I let him know that it was fine for him to leave the tops, crooked parts, branches etc. Those will actually be perfect for what I need. The huge logs would be way too much for me to handle and it would be such a shame for such lovely trees to be cut into cordwood instead of being used as poles or lumber. He says he needs to build a barn and this will make it so he won’t have to cut so many trees on his own place. If all goes as planned it should be of benefit to everyone involved. I LOVE BARTERING!
TIMBER! (Well hopefully anyway.) August 10, 2012
