I bought a new house 9 months ago that has been empty for 4 years….This place was really over grown, as the last family that lived here had gotten really old and with no help for yard work this was a foresst wasteland…to give you idea…when I cut down the 5 ft grass in the backyard I found a 14 ft fiberglass John boat!!!
Needless to say there are a lot of old Oaks, Maples, Walnuts, Cedars, and Cherry trees growing all over the yard…most in really bad shape from years of non-care and weathering…These trees were also nearing the end of there life spans as they were planted almost 150 years ago according to the village hall. I called my buddy who helps me with my landscaping work and asked him to comeover and cut it all down! Well after 6 months of work and organizing all the logistics…it is all down!!!
I have almost 20k bd/ft of Red Oak, and a few thousand bd/ft of the other species of trees EACH! I even ended up with 8, 3 ft tall sections that measure over 5 ft in diameter.
I am never going to use all this wood and am looking to sell it…I know what the boards go for…but I can’t find anything on slabs!
If interested in buying any green boards, wel will be milling them in the next 2 weeks and are currently slabbing the 8 large sections into 18/4 slabs anywhere from 3 to 5 and a half ft in diameter…In box me for any inquiries!
