What is a large oak tree worth?
I am going to have a large oak tree removed from a house we are buying. The tree is close to three feet in diameter and fairly straight. My brother seems to think someone will pay me to take it. Any thoughts?

Talk to the people who you think will buy it first. I had a large Oak fall in a storm at the farm. When I went looking for people to sell it to, none were interested in it. I could not figgure out why. Talking to a forester I found out why. Oak wood changes color within 48 hours if it is not taken to the lumber mill and cut right away. If you cut the tree down and do not have it at a lumber yard within that time it is junk. Sell it and have them cut it down themselves. Now for value, $2000 minus the labor cutting and cutting into usable wood.

If you can't find a mill to take it you might try cabinet or custom furniture makers. They are alway looking for prime wood.

Hey neighbor, let me know and I'll come out there with my 029 Farm Boss and splitter. I can always use good firewood!

Don't forget stuff like burls or the stump as figured wood often has a higher value for cabinet making.
I hold these to be the two greatest human values ever: Firstly, unconditional and universal love of all beings, and then, the sense of humour, with love giving meaning to our lives, and the sense of humour giving us solace from love.

In the yard
A lot of mills won't take trees that were / are in yards. Too big of a chance of nails and other items in them that could ruin their saw blades, and hurt someone.
