I am not sure whether this is the appropriate forum for this question… I did post it in the “Woodworking Trade & Swap” forum as well… please pardon my double posts!
Anyway, I have several (5 or 6) Sassafras trees in my yard that need to go. My father was out this past weekend, he’s been clearing a sizable lot in Western MA, and has been working with a Consulting Forester to get the best prices for his timber. We were telling him that we were planning on hiring a local arborist to get the trees out. He thought that the timber was valuable enough that someone would probably pay us to take them out!
I did a little research, and Consulting Foresters usuallly work with much larger timber stands, and I am not sure that it would be worth hiring someone like that… figured I’d put the question out to the LJ community and see if y’all had any advice?
