Hi fellow Lumberjocks, I’m going to start advertising my lumber from the sawmill I have here in SW AZ and I’m curious what you guys have seen for pricing around your areas. Now, I do not have much of what you find in stores, but I do know there are local sawmills in Phx, Tucson and surrounding areas and am curious what I should quote for pricing.

I have Mesquite, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Cottonwood, Palo Verde, Mulberry and pine.

I have the option of selling green or air dried from 1-5 years and I would also offer the option of flattening slabs etc for an additional fee.

What kind of price range do you think?

there are alot of variables on pricing. Looking at the comercial lumber yards. Live edge brings a premium, as does thickness. Here in Las Vegas. 4/4 hard maple is a little over $4 a bf. where 12/4 is $6 to $7. I have seen ads here where a guy is collecting local wood and milling it himself. Seems like I read where he wants $15 bf for misquite. I have never called, I think that is just way to much.

I agree, that is way high unless he has it already planed and ready to go. Most everything I do is live edge, so that gives the buyer the option to work with it like that, or just cut it down to make boards.

Have your say...
