What to look for?
Hey guys, I have done very little milling. I only have a chainsaw mill and haven't used it a whole lot, maybe 4 or 5 trees.
Anyway, a friend of mine recently bought a small farm that has a lot of trees he wants cut down. I'm heading out there tomorrow and I was wondering what to look for other than the types of wood I like.
I'm hoping to find some walnut, cherry, or maple and I think I'll look for trees with less branching. Something straight and not too stressed. Am I on target with this idea?
Also, on the downside, he said he had a pro come out and look around and the guy wasn't interested. Does that mean that there's probably nothing good there, or maybe just not enough?
Any input would be appreciated.
