Did not want to hijack the Big'uns thread, but it reminded me of something else. (no, not that )
I have a number of trees that were cut due to power lines and road construction. I have found someone with a sawmill that charges $170 for 1000 bf. I don't want to waste the wood, so I am considering having some of the trees milled, but I have never done it before and don't know what to ask for.
I have mostly Oak, but also Southern Pine, Hickory, and Wild Cherry.
I have no immediate need for the wood, but am looking to future use.
What is minimum diameter that I should bother with?
What size/type of cuts should I request?
Will I need a special place to store the lumber?
