So … we’ve accumulated wood … this is one woodlot we have tucked away. We have more material being held at a friend’s tree yard (photos / inventory pending) ...
Here’s the problem. The mill has been offline for a variety of reasons and the market of course has fallen for logs given the storm gave us all a huge influx of them. That’s great – but NOW WHAT?
SO we’re in the debating stages and negotiating for some places to store stacked/stickered lumber to air dry before it goes in the kiln. I’d like to get all this material sliced by the end of next summer, sooner would be better but no time or resources.
We are debating if we can find a portable mill to rent or hire. This lot is on a mill’s property already, our other material we have to finalize the purchase and then get it sliced. There is walnut, cherry, osage, locust, maple, and some misc other stuff in here. The other lot has some nice sticks of cherry, white oak, locust, walnut, and some misc stuff as well.
Anyone interested in buying logs???
