Shingle oak, is it sold as a red oak?
« on: August 09, 2023, 06:59:46 PM »
Starting my road to log my place. Been here 24 years and only cut 4 wheeler trails. Going to make a main trail down the center as i figure out a game plan, also i plan to get a sawmill and like sell on Craigslist. BUT, i dont have one yet and need to sell the stuff Iím taking down. Main trees i have is white/red oak, hickory, walnut, maples, beech, elm, cherry, and my favorite trees i have and hate to cut because of the low prices, yellow tulip. Huge, straight, tall. Also my second favorite tree is eastern red cedar. Iím having a hard time pushing even the small ones into the burn pile and cutting logs(5Ēx16í). Love that wood.

But, i ran across an oak i have no ideal about. Shingle oak. It says itís a red oak. Is this sold as a red oak?  Will buyers know what this is? Any info, cause Iím going through a spot with a bunch and pretty large.

Lots of shingle oak around here, including the one right outside my door.  Yes they are cut and sold as red oak.  I have milled some and I could not really tell the difference from northern red oak by looking at the wood.
