Trees – Cutting and Selling for Lumber

Q: I have three 20 year old pine trees in my back yard that need to be removed. It is my understanding that there are some lumber companies that will purchase the logs from you once the tree has been cut. Could you recommend someone?

A: Having a tree company buy your trees is only a possibility if you have a large number of trees (an acre or more) that are growing well away from your house.

The labor of taking down three trees… plus the cost of loading them … the liability concern if something goes wrong……costs more than their lumber value .
