Eastern White Pine Logs going price
« on: September 05, 2017, 05:22:09 pm »
I have the opportunity to get some nice, straight clear logs in 12', 16' and 20' with centered hearts, few limbs, etc.

Going to build a TF structure (shop/outbuilding) later this year, so wanted to get sawing and placed on sticks. Since I don't have a cut list yet, considering just sawing squares to whatever the log will yield and resaw later when I have the list.

Any caveats I should consider and what's the going rate for prime saw logs. FOB, timbering site?

Thx

Around here might as well leave them stand or give them away. Mills don't want pine. Should be really cheap if had to pay any.

Thanks for the info. It appears (or so I am told) that white pine is fetching $100/M at a local mill and $250 for prime a bit north. I'm asking for prime+ since it's for my building/man-cave, so willing to pay for the pick-n-choose. Anyone have a load of prime pine?

The problem is nobody wants to have their logs high graded and get stuck with the junk. Around here,  I don't know what the pulp situation is.  I'd like to pay enough for the good stuff to offset the hassle of disposing of the junk, but I haven't had any luck with that yet.

I agree with that! Wouldn't a timber seller rather get $$ for sawlogs and send the rest for pulp, thus enhancing their bottom line?
