My stepdad had his woods logged this past week the only thing paying any money is black walnut
luckily he's got a bunch of it. They run 660's with 20" bars on them.

Cool pics, thanks. Gotta love those skidder chains. Would like to find a set for the JD!

Walnut and Maple is the only logged wood in this area.

Terry Folts Logging, they were the 4th or 5th company to come and look at the trees in the last 5 years.

He was the only one that talked reasonable prices, and they didn't tear up the woods.

And on top of it I picked them up as customers, they run nothing but Stihl :thumbsup:

Stepdads logs



Neighbors logs



The big logs range from 32"-42"

So I guess the 20-inch bars were JUST enough for some of them ! The old Timberjacks... were they stick-steer, or wheel ? I remember some old Tree Farmer skidders that were Stick-steer, Up for right, down for left.... or was that up for down, and left for right ? :hmm:

They've got steering wheel on them.

Yeah they run 20" bars and 3/8" .063 gauge chain which no one around here runs, everyone runs .050

They came in and logged my parents and the 3 adjacent properties, they took from 60-120 logs off
each place. They will take 2-4 logs per tree unlike the other outfits we talked to that would just take butt logs.

Being easy on the woods is the most important consideration when hiring someone to cut on the farm.

Is there some sort of contract to sign before the work gets started or is it a "we'll give you what we can give you after we see what we can give you...."

What was the price per 1000 FT? I think Walt did better than that with ash.
