oak log prices
« on: March 27, 2007, 11:42:45 PM »
 I know it may be hard to answer without seeing,but is .43 b/f for w/oak logs with 2 sides clear a fair price to pay from another LARGE sawmill .

 What about water oak, and hickory sawlogs at 25.00/ton. my first log purchase and want to try and be in the ballpark somewhere...

                        thanks,Ivey

Water oak and hickory sawlogs at $25.00/ton is about the same price as they would command for pulp logs.  My question is what do you mean by "sawlogs"?  What are the specifications?   So, if they are truly sawlogs and not pulpwood, that is a good price if you are the buyer.  If it is rough grade and pulpwood, it is not good if you will be trying to saw lumber out of it.

Right now white oak is through the roof at the mills.  Veneer logs at $1.50-$3 a bd ft while red oak is at .75-$1.50 a bd ft, so i would think saw logs would be similar in difference.  If you could get two good faces i would probably buy them.  The other thing is making a realtionship with someone who is used to selling lots of wood at one time.  Expect to pay extra for small volumes, extra for being new and extra just for the heck of it.

 r/oak=450.tho
 w/oak=350.-450. tho
 gum=300. tho
 pop=375.-450. tho
 cyp=350.-500. tho
 
 I think that I need to find me a logger..
