Just to let everyone know I went by the gents place yesterday and the logs were gone  :o. I guess someone bested my offer. Maybe they offered him $200. and he thought a bird in hand is better than two in the bush and took it. Who knows.

Maybe he got $9000.00 too, you may never know.  For what it's worth, I just purchased 2) 12' x 26" dia black walnut logs for $100.00. Only reason I did is because he tossed in 6 - 16' x 12+++" dia eastern red cedar logs too. Both walnut are straight and don't appear to have any defects.  I plan on sawing them up this weekend... I'll know better when I open them up.

Your right people see walnut and go crazy, they are blinded by the $$$ signs.

right across the road there are two black walnut tress that I'm going to help take down. I don't mind working to help a neibor out and he doesn't mind giving me the trees.

The truth of the matter is around here black walnut is getting hard to find. And the wood workers in the area are willing to pay upwards of $5.00 a BF for good clean kiln dried walnut lumber... So I can aford to pay a little for black walnut.

Just my 2cents...
