We have the pick up guys put 2 chains in the bed, then put forks under a top log and pick whole load up. Driver moves forward slowly and we carry load to pile, then pull chains out with loader.  We have them put the small ends to the back so they can be measured while on the truck.
We buy down to 2" and sometimes 1".
Have to come up with 1200  3" x 8' for a load.
700 peeledd to 3" later.  So we can use the small logs.
Cull logs are processed to gross us from about 70 cents to $1.10 per board foot.  Takes one person to process them.  Send out 35,000# at a time. Can't keep up.  We can make about 400# per hour.
Our success is based on being able to market all the cedar that is available at a good price.  Buying tree length by weight helps.
I am in the pink when sawing cedar.
