There’s a lot of paper and saw mills up here with the abundance of good hardwood in the area and the woodyards sometimes will either give you the knarly stuff that they can’t process or they sell it for a reasonable price. I stopped at one woodyard that chops up all of the wood they get on-site for a paper mile a mile from them 20 miles from here today and they have rejected wood that their metal detector has kicked out and then they stack it and sell it for $35 a cord. The thing is is that I’d have to either use my 20’ skid steer trailer to get a few cords which means they’d have to grapple it for me and they frown on that since there’s only 3 guys at the place at anytime while it’s running on 3 shifts or I can hire a logging trucker I know for $0.30 a mile and $10 a cord to go get it and bring it to my place, about a 55 mile round trip for the trucker. I wander if it’d be worth it...? Here some photos I took of the cull pile. I also swung around and took a shot of the paper mill that they supply to. Apparently they metal detect the logs after the bark is taken off the logs. I also swung around and snapped a photo of the paper mill that they supply wood shop to.
