I have a nice stand of big Larch (most trees 30 inch trunk) and red pine. I want to thin them out a little, since they are so huge they are just shading everything out underneath. I had a guy offer me 15 dollars a tree for the larch. Is that a low offer or about in line with current lumber pricing? Thanks for the help!

I'm not a forester but I know a little about this. At 30" DBA you should have somewhere around 1,000 board ft. For something comparable, such as hemlock, you should be able to get around $.10 - .15 cents a ft if it doesn't have the shakes.




Is there any reason you're not willing to pay a forester 10% to make sure you get the most out of your lumber and that your land isn't left a mess?
