I still believe that selling green slabs will be a tough go. 
Fresh cut natural edge slabs have long been a big seller here. The business name has sold and was called mobile custom sawmilling for 14 years  and is now Silverwood sawmill and continues sucessfully to sell fresh as well as air dried

From what I've seen, 3 types of customers will buy green slabs:

  • A. Cheapskates who want to dry it themselves.
  • B. Uneducated buyers (a subset of A with even more downstream headaches). 
  • C. Wholesale buyers who can dry it, attempting to educate and sell to B and dealing with frustrations of A. 

If you price accordingly and stick with C, you'll be ok. Cater to A and/or B, invest in whiskey....lots of it.  :D ;D :D
I own my own small piece of the world on an 8 acre plot on the side of a mountain with walnut, hickory, ash and spruce.

I will be watching this thread; I am interested in seeing what others think.  Just off the top of my head, I am thinking the value of green slabs would be about half that of dry (less for unstable woods, more for walnut)
I see you are in Texas. I buy oak slabs buy the ton, same as logs.
I would be interested in 50-100 tons if you have that many.

If the price is right it might be worth my drive with close to 10 tons from a couple of these big monster white oaks. Maybe we should open a line of communication? ;)
