I have old growth pine I pulled from the bottom of the lake that sunk 110 years ago, its mostly white pine and I sawed it on a wood mizer mill, can anyone tell me what the lumber might be worth. I use it only for my own projects .

Look what pine lumber sells in your area and add 25% for sinker logs and for being clear tight grain. That is my ball park WAG.

I would think maybe $4 to $5 per BF. White pine generally sells for about $1.50 per BF for shelving, etc.
