    Anyone buy walnut logs lately?

    I found 18 walnut logs for sale. Logs are about 24" diameter, 9 feet long. If anyone has bought walnut logs, can you let me know how much you paid? These logs are located in South West Virginia.

    I don't get my logs from loggers but from tree services. An average (for me, which is probably a blow down, killed by disease, or yard tree - character, not commodity) walnut log that size brings $100 delivered (.50 p/bf). KC Metro area.

    Remember there are restrictions on moving logs (and firewood) these days due to the disease and parasites. Best check to see if you are in a restricted area. I think you can move them freely within a given restricted area.

    If you want to research, you might call small sawmills in your area and ask what they will pay for them. The woodfinder.com might list some or contact Woodmizer for a list of people who signed up for their listing.

    That size log may be VENEER size and brings a premium price... think about buying them, then reselling for veneer..

    I'm having a tough time keeping up with walnut logs given to me lately.
    The mills don't want yard logs because of metal. At $20.00 per band blade I could care less if I hit metal. Just one slab of walnut will pay for a messed up blade.

    The logs were sold for $50.00 each. The buyer said he wants a bowl or two turned from one log that looks like it has highly figured grain. I will try to buy a log or two from him as well.
