DO YOU BUY TREES?
Mostly we offer removal at no charge (an arborist will charge you) if your tree can be cut to a dimension we can use.
However, we are always looking for Walnut logs, 24" base and up. We are sometimes interested in buying exceptional White Oak, Elm, English Walnut, Myrtle, Madrone, Maple and other hardwoods, and we will occasionally buy soft wood trees.
We try our best to make use of as many trees as we can but sometimes we just don't have room or time. Please contact us to discuss options.
YOUR SITE SAYS YOU SELL LUMBER PER BOARD FOOT (BF).
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
This is a common means of selling lumber and is easy to figure out. The formula is:
Width x Length x Thickness / 144 = BF
Here is an example:
10" wide x 114" long x 2" thick = 2,200/144 = 15.277 BF
15 BF x cost per BF = Actual cost
GLOSSARY OF TERMS USED ON OUR SITE
This wood is drying in our yard. Contact us to see if its ready for the kiln or your project!
Lumber which has been run through a Kiln for stability. The wood is dried to an average of 8-10% moisture content.
This means the piece of wood has been Surfaced 1 Side. This is done to reveal the grain of the wood.
It helps the customer to see what type and quality of wood they are receiving. The piece is not flat or ready for a project at this time; further processing will need to be done. Material will lose thickness during processing.
These pieces have been run through our sander or other machines to get the wood flat. The thickness of this material should be at its final dimensions.
READY TO FINISH
This piece has also been flattened but may have also been sanded to 80 grit. Additional sanding and finish work is needed but it's one step closer!
