Can you sell cut down trees?
Thereof, can you sell a tree from your yard?
Even though selling a tree in your yard is not an easy thing to do, it is not impossible. Know the tree species. Consult a tree identification book to identify the tree or check with your county forester. You will have a better chance of selling if it is a valuable species in your area.
One may also ask, will lumber companies cut down trees for free? Contact a reputable logging company about cutting and removing your trees. Many small companies will do this for no charge, provided there are enough trees – usually 20 or more -- to make it worth their while. In some cases, the logging company may not only remove your trees but will also pay you.
Just so, how much can you sell trees for?
The total volume of the tree would be 225 board feet. The value of this tree would be $195.00 for an average of $866.00 per thousand board feet. A fourteen inch Red Oak with a grade 3 rating would be worth $12.00 for an average price per thousand board feet of $265.00.
How much will loggers pay for trees?
If a mill offers to pay you $500 per thousand for red oak grade logs. Start with the $500 and figure in the profit margin you need. Now subtract your cost of harvesting at $100 per thousand bf. The result will be what you would pay per thousand board feet for the standing red oak grade material.
