I’d ask the bandsaw guy how long he thinks it would take and only do as many tree’s as you can afford. A bandsaw should be able to saw a lot of lumber in a couple of days if the logs are piled up waiting for him. You should be able to get 4-5000 ft per day, maybe more

Take a look at the calculator at

I bought a small mill . I had a pile of logs and I got a quote for the pile of about $1200. I paid $2400 for the mill, I’ve had a bunch of fun, and its paid for itself. I cut this in a couple of days myself.
