Topic tags/keywords: question

I live in SW Michigan and recently lost several large trees in a storm. I don’t know what kind of trees, could be cherry or oak, but they are large and were beautiful. Is anyone interested in them for projects, lumber, slats, etc?? They are “resting” in our woods and we need to get them out so we can use our walking trails. I hate to cut them up for firewood if someone can use them. Thanks for any suggestions or help you can offer.

I sure wish I were there, they wouldn’t be resting for long, lol. Very nice of you to offer, please do put them out there as people do indeed get them if they find out about them.

I wish you were close enough to get them, too! Unfortunately, we have had several storms go through our area this year so there are a lot of trees that will be cut up and burned.

In my town there is a guy with a portable band mill. He doesn’t pay for any trees but will haul them off for free. I’ll bet there’s a guy like that near by where you live. Those little mills are all over I imagine. This one just does it for the lumber.

Thank you for your suggestions. As an update – definitely some cherry, oak and one catalpa (sp).
