Monster Walnut Log price?
« on: June 15, 2019, 10:53:36 AM »
My buddy, an arborist has taken down a monster Black Walnut from a back yard. As near as I can figure, almost 2700 bd ft. The but log is 10'2" long, small end at 44" large end 62" He has more logs on top of that of course. next log is 10' and 44"-38"

What woud it be worth to sell by the BD FT ?
Are there buyers around  for the root ball?

It would be hard to sell a town log around here because the chance of insulators or metal of some sort. But probably worth some bucks for a live edge table top if someone with a band mill would take a chance on it.

I like pricing by the pound! He also pulled out the root ball which would price best by the pound. 
He was offered $3.50 a bd ft for all the logs up to 16" small end.

It depends both on the size and the quality.  $5 per bdft for exceptionally clear, 4 clear face, $2.80 for 3 CF and down to $1.50 for lower grades.  Nails will reduce value.  

Most yard walnut trees are not high grade.

Wow - that works out to be around $10.00 per board foot in the log!

That was in Canadian, so 35% less than a US $

I saw a wide load flatbed with a rootball going down the road last week.  The roots had been cut back to where they were 3ft thick tubes and they still hung ober the rub rail.  Id say they cut it at 8ft up and it may have just barely been above the flare.  Definitely a crane loadup and almost big enough to install a car tunnel.
