bump for you


I could have used you 15 years ago. could not get any one to take about 10 30ft plus black walnut trees.. Ended up cutting and burning them all. What a waste

I just took one walnut down that was dead for a few years, figured it was rotten inside. Looking at it my buddy was reluctant to even help me cut it for fire wood. That thing ended up solid to the core. Had to sharpen my saw twice cutting that hard ass shit up. Heated my friends house for almost a month off that one tree.

Have three others, I love trees but I also love money especially these days. Might have to get some pics and see what you think, if not you maybe you can direct me to someone on this side of the state.

Do you guys only take standing or could I start a pile at the yard and when I get a load have you guys come get it? Or where is your mill at and I could bring them to you. It is sick the amount of nice logs we have chunked off just because I couldn't find anyone to take em. I did a job just a month or so ago that we had probably 300 lineal feet of oak that was 40" plus.
