Finding Someone to Cut Trees for the Lumber

I am a Roswell resident and have ten pines (in excess of 70 feet tall, and about a foot and a half in diameter), plus a bunch of scrub pines on my property that we want removed. I don't care to be paid for the lumber, I just want to know if there is someone who will come and cut them and take them. We recently had trees removed from our front yard - and they tree removal service had a lumber company come pick up our wood and sell it. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hi - Sorry but I do not know where Roswell is located but I have had experience with having trees removed in Florida.

Since you had trees removed before - have you ask the same company about these trees?

There should be a list of companies in your telephone book or Google the info with your location. maybe local companies will be listed.

Also look for names of any lumber companies or sawmills.

The problem with pines:

1. Usually is not a favorite for firewood so smaller companies do not cut them.

2. Pines may take heavier equipment and moving that kind of equipment is expensive.

3. Also, a log truck may have to be used and that is costly also.


4. Tree companies would have to weigh the cost of sending the equipment, truck and labor against how many "usable" trees are at that location AND how close they are to a house or buildings (insurance).

5. They would also need to know if their trucks could drive into your yard.

I had pines similar to what you mentioned but finally had to pay to have them removed. Maybe there are more tree companies near you.

Good luck.
