Looking For A Timber Cutter
« on: April 30, 2014, 11:42:11 am »
Anyone know where I can find a good timber cutter? It would be on a part time to full time basis. Of course more work in the dry months. Good pay and I will pay travel expenses. I can possibly use the right person for other things related to timber and logging. Thanks.

Welcome to the Forestry Forum

Can you, or would you, tell us more about your operation? And more about what you have going in Ohio.

We are a Timber Management /Logging Company serving Western Ohio. We work with mostly private landowners managing their timber resources. We typically harvest and market the mature and unhealthy trees as to make the woods a more productive stand in the future and to get the landowner maximum return on their harvest. We have many, both domestic and foreign markets that we put the cut logs into. We are a member of The Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.

It works out pretty well for me.....most days. Most of the trees we do are going for pulp. I'd guess the average diameter is between 12" and 14". We cut them at 16.5' long, so I usually will get three logs from each tree. Anything from the top that is less than 6" in diameter I don't touch. The track loader and the excavator clean up all that debris.

   EDIT: What I meant to type above was $.20 per log, vice per tree. If I get five logs per tree = $1. Sorry for my confusion. ::)

If I have a guy go in and cut with the skidder I pay 30.00 per thousand. Or 4.00 per tree, his choice. This includes bucking at landing.
