A good chainsaw and a 2 foot stick does good too. Most saw mills around here want it in 12/14/16 foot sticks anyway. I知 cutting a lot almost just like the pics 12 inch痴 At 16 foot. 25 trees per load saw logs. I知 getting a load of saw logs and a load of pulpwood a day.
No matter where you go there you are!!!

No tree length anything in my neck of the woods in NW NC.  8-16 foot in 2 ft increments with trim is only option.   I cut for grade amyways when i can but i know must bigger loggers here are pretty much using a bucksaw and slashing everything 16 ft

Studwood and logs is CTL here, but pulp is treelength. We used to have a 4' softwood pulp market up until the 90's. You could haul a pickup load of 4 foot pulp to some mills if you wanted to. You would need to be close by of course to be viable. ;D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)
