Where can I sell large oak burl wood logs

Hi, my husband cut down a large oak burl wood tree and it is too large for him to cut on his portable saw mill, so he wants to sell it by the logs if possible. Does anyone know where I can find buyers of large burl wood logs? Any info would be appreciated. We live in Florida.
Thanks
Shelley

Advertise on Craig List. I know here in Tennessee there is a lot of people that have portable band saws and they in some cases will come to you. Also do Google searches in your area.

The only thing about posting on craigslist, is that I wouldn't know what to sell it for. I've tried to google the value, but because burl wood is so different from tree to tree it's hard to find a value for it.
thanks

Too many variables to have a standard price. The local market will dictate this one.

I would start with a price that if gotten, you and your husband look at other and both say Not Bad.

You'll quickly know if you are not in the ball park if you get zero replies.

You could also put OBO after your price.

Also search CL and google for saw mill operators/hardwood in your area and try to reach out to them

Also there should be a wood working club in your area.
