Free White Pines for saw logs
« on: August 17, 2010, 11:20:46 AM »
Friend of mine at works is getting 4 to 5 90' tall white pines cut down, which should be usable as saw logs.
Location is southern Maine (New Gloucester).

He will get some pictures, and will have cut to desired length by felling company.
Just wants somebody to pick up the logs for free.

Sounds like money in the bank to me.  I love free logs.

Most times when I get free logs, I just go the next customers and see who wants them. They will generally then go with me and help load &  haul them. They pay me for my labor plus sawing. Everyone is happy.

Probably 2/3 of my log yard left today and got chipped for mulch.....about 1/3 was pur unsawable junk Eastern White Pine that was a consolation prize for getting the good with it from tree services.  The other 1/3 either had metallic problems OR was so old it was starting to decay.  Between yeaterday and today they hauled away about 30 10 wheeled dump truck loads.  I went to watch the whole tree chipper, it could chip a dump truck load in about 3 minutes. 

It was time to clean up the log yard, business has been way off for too long.
