Anyone want to post what pine logs are going for near you ?
I dont understand that
I'll suppose that is for selling logs, i meant how much does a
6-8" by 8-16' pine log sell for, and where in southern MO can
i buy them. Im thinking of building a 12x16 or so cabin.
Also how much does a dried 16' pine log weigh ?
According to my Ace referance book pine can weigh from 80 to 120 per cubic foot depending on moisture content and species.
We just sold a few logs. Logs are scaled at the small end of the cut. The logs we cut were 17 feet long. A couple were 25" at the small end, and scaled out over 400 board feet in that log.
Stumpage is what somebody else gives you for the logs, with them cuttin' and doing the hauling. All our stuff went to plywood mills.
Dried Spruce logs suitable for log homes with 9" to 12" tops are selling for $8 LF in Montana.
If you're close to Northern Wisconsin, I have some leftover 8" x 8" red pine logs, milled flat on 2 sides. Enough to construct a 16 x 24 building. $1000 and they're yours.
Sadly, I am not :-(
Montana 435.00 per 1000 board feet for lodge pole and 448.00 for doug fir. We are being logged right now so these are current prices.
