Selling Wood in Live Pecan Tree

How do I connect with someone who wants special wood for projects or furniture? I have a live pecan tree, very old, very tall, and large circumference of trunk and limbs. I want to speak with someone about them cutting it and buying the wood from me.

You can advertise online through, facebook, tweeter , insta - gram , flyers, church, etc. When you advertise be sure to only put your zip code for potential clients . This is a way to cover a wider spectrum of people, and get in touch by email .

It will be difficult to find anyone that will cut one large tree for free much less pay you for it.
Tree cutting is very expensive and milling the wood is also expensive.
You do not say where this tree is located but it sounds like it is in a residential area. This would make it even more complicated as there will be the danger of a fallen tree hitting a house, garage, driveway and usually not enough room to maneuver large equipment and a log hauling truck. Think of the damage they could do to your yard and the stump removal and cleanup will cost almost as much as felling the tree.

You might try checking Google with your question and zip code to see what mills and small wood working yards are in your area. Give some of them a call but I think you will be disappointed to find how much it may cost you to remove the tree.
I do not think pecan wood is listed as one of the truly valuable woods.

Here is an article that is well worth reading - long but lots of
information & written by someone who works with 'special wood'.

You may be able to contact someone on this site that can help you with this question. The will require a picture that shows tree and another showing surrounding area as where you are located (and measurements).
