I'm guessing there's a waiting customer before you start cutting, but...
I see this one logging crew working in my AO pretty regular, I'm 95% sure they're a local family. They have big equipment, John Deere hydro axe, skidders and dozers, a pair of 18-wheelers they use to haul the logs to the mill. It looks like they're cutting 21-footers, as they get 2-rows per trailer, and it's a long trailer... Sometimes they're working pulp/chip wood fields, sometimes timber.Read More

I tried uploading photos but they are too big and I'm too much of a dinosaur to resize them.

So I have 3 walnut logs that have been sitting in the yard for about 2 years in the shade and I'm finally cutting them up. Two of them have a good cup about 4" in 8' or so and the growth rings follow the bark. Problem is, I want to flat saw them and I'm not sure how that will work out. They are too big for my mill so today I cut them down with a csm to a size my neighbors Dingo 1000 can pick up. Read More

Is it just me or are the "pop-up ads" on the site over the top? Every time I go to a new page, another pop-up shows.

Haven't been on the site in a while but it almost makes it unusable. Don't remember it being this bad.

On a mobile device. Does that make a difference?

I heard speculation that logs that have been infested or killed by pine beetles are less valuable.

Why would that be?

Is that true in most parts of the county?

What do you think are the main factors that affect decision making around how much lumber gets processed at sawmills?

How predictable or seasonal are their production quantities?
