I have quite a bit of ponderosa that I would happily sell for .50 cents a foot. Around here you are doing good to get 300$ per thousand delivered to the mill. Last sale I bought(to be logged in summer of 2010) I gave around 60$ per thousand for stumpage. This would figure to about 10$ per ton stumpage. Of course, I am several hundred miles south/west of you. Keep in mind that if you buy logs at .50 cents a foot, saw them for .30 cents,and sell for .80 cents, you have no room for error or marketing or?
? I figure .30 cents per foot to log and deliver, .30 cents to mill , and .20 cents to cover loss and marketing and error.
Hey good luck, at least your going to give it a go.
