Eric, on container is 24m3 around 6.6 cords? How much $ do you get for a container of ash?

when i crused the forest with my forester friend one month back on my Switzerland vacation he explained me that they have some kind of fungus attacking the ash trees and they die over 2 years. so if they see a dead tree (easy to recognize, the ones with few leaves left) it gets harvested. they expect 90-95% of the ashes to die ! that's really sad

Same thing with Mills in Manitoba, when the conditions are great to produce they put you on quota,limit you to a small fraction per week or month of what you can usually produce. Then when conditions turn poor for logging Mills are crying for wood

Its a Georgia-Pacific paper plant We have 2 of them in South MS and a Chip mill that is own by them. 
I sell to the chip mill most of the time when there taking pine because its only 5 miles from me and I can run the back roads all the way there. The mill in the Pics is about 30 miles from me the other one is 30 miles to the east of me. If these mills shut down it would be hard on us. Pulpwood would not be worth anything. We have a chip and saw mill that is close by there 4 saw mils with in 30 miles too. The I like GP because they don't cut anyone off when they stop taking wood they shut everyone out. Each week they send out a text telling everyone what there taking hardwood/pine and who can get the loads in win. Last week the chip mill was taking the loads from the trucks to the hopper because they was running 18 hours a day and had run out of there stock pile. the next week they was full and not taking any.

 9-1200 doyle on average ash, 7' and up down to 8", doesn't take long to slash a load of your in the decent stuff.

That's true but the humidity can't escape from the container, so no cracking or twisting.  I have heard that the nice teak we load in containers arrives in india full with gray mold/must
