I live in Madison, WI. Just had a Black Walnut tree cut down in my backyard. I need to get rid of these logs. My dad split one to take home and woodwork. The other one he split and got to tired to finish the job.

Anyways, are these worth anything or should I just give them away? There about 5ft.

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

They look pretty sound to me, but a bit short to have any great value. You might get out the yellow pages and lookup sawmills or woodworking shops in the area. You may make a deal for some money or cuttings. Good luck.

Float them down ol’ Miss, through the canal up to Seattle. I’ll be happy to take them ;-))

I would definitely keep them and take them to a sawmill to be cut. Walnut is a beautiful wood and you could make many projects with that.

You could try listing them on Craigslist

If you still have them I live in Madison on the east side and have just started my tree service work and would be able to use them. Email me and let me know.

Have your say...
