I was wondering if anybody has had any experience with selling timber from cleared land on the island. My brother told me I should just keep the timber for firewood. Does anybody have any suggestions? Anybody have any idea what the going rate is for timber on the island?
Thanks

You might want to contact Russ or Stuart Riker. They have a sawmill and lots of wood. They are cutting Island timber. If they can't help you, I'm sure they'll let you know of someone who can.

Smile Don't know about BBI prices, but I buy Pine (red and white) delivered to the sawmill at $ 250- $275 (depending on the log length) per 1,000 board ft. 1''X12"x12".. A good mill operator or logger can estimate how many board feet are in a log... They will estimate low and cut the maximum Brd ft,. From each log.. to get the most amount of profit.. Remember Profit is not a dirty word, that's how people make a living.. Most likely they would not want anything less than 8.5 ft long.. The longer the better..
Good luck
