Finding Someone to Cut Trees for the Lumber

Unless you have a large number of trees on many acres of land, it is unlikely that anyone will want them for lumber. Lumbering is big business, and people involved in it don't come to cut down half a dozen trees. You MAY find someone who would cut them down for you for firewood. How many trees are you talking about?

I have three really tall pine trees, I heard that some ppl or even companies will pay me and come cut them down because of how far down the trunk goes into the ground and how straight it is. Like for light poles

Check for a Craigslist page for your area and place an ad for firewood or lumber. You can offer it for free if it is your desire to just get it done.

A lot of people need firewood or there may be someone in your area that can have the wood cut into usable planks. Good wishes to you. Rae

I agree use craigslist for ur area.

A few things to consider -

1) if the trees are close to any buildings, be careful who cuts them down. Don't want to damage any property.

2) Plan on the process to take a while. Cutting down the tree, cutting the tree into pieces that will be manageable. Loading the wood...

3) Most will NOT take branches with leaves. You need to consider if they must take all of the tree or all of the trees. Or if you have a chipper to clean up the remains (cheap wood chips for your landscaping).

4) Will you help them? What kind of help? Do they need to bring their own equipment?

5) Do you need to be their while they are? This type of project will leave marks on your lawn - it can not be helped. Be prepared. Have fun with them.

6) Listing how many and types helps. Guessing on height and diameter or circumference with pics will get faster results.

Providing as much info as you can up front eliminates tons of questions. I would place it under the free category and the Farm and Garden category.

Hope this helped you some. I'm always looking for wood to burn in the outdoor wood burner. We heat a two story house, shop and studio apt.
