I would like to know if anyone has thought or transported wood in quantity across borders in between Canada and US or visa versa.
Here is the background to my question. I am thinking that if one took a drive with a reasonable trailer and made a few stops at small diy lumber yards for me it would around the Buffalo Pennsylvania or even Michigan area and bought wood (would be green wood) directly from the various small sawyers that one could pick up a chunk of wood at very good prices.
I got to thinking about this after seeing the post that Randy Wynn (who is a hobby sawyer) made when replying to Rick. Randy says if I understood him correctly that he sells his own wood that he has cut.
"and when I sell my lumber I sell it for between $.50 to $.60 BF." End Quote
Now i must have something wrong here when i see prices locally at $5 per board foot.
Can anyone offer any comments on this subject?
I do know of manufacturers that have imported substantial amounts of wood but i am thinking of a diy sense.
