Selling Trees for Lumber?

I am getting ready to develop an acre of land for 3 residential homes. However I need to have about 50 tall fir trees removed. Some are very large at the base. Can I sell them? Is it worthwhile? The property is in Everett Washington.

Removing trees is hard work and requires expensive equipment. Dont expect anyone to do it in exchange for lumber.

First off you need to check with the county where you live and see the laws about selling trees in your area. There are some places that forbid the sale of trees like this. After you find this out you need to take into account to remove trees such as this requires a company to come in which is rather expensive to dig up the trees and cut them down so you can sell them.

No matter what you will need to hire a company who does this type of work to cut down the trees and remove the roots so you can develope your piece of land.

I thought I could find someone to chop down my tree and keep the wood but it's not that easy. First, I had a pro consult tell me I had to get a permit from the city (oak tree) and then the cost of having it removed? Quite big. You can contact tree removal companies via Yelp and get quotes, but it's generally not as easy as cut and sell.
