I was under the impression that walnut logs were in demand also. Walnut lumber is X-pensive.

the logs are small & low grade. It's the root I need to peddle to high-end buyers.

Other than veneer, you will always come out ahead if you get it milled and then sell. I don't sell logs, only boards. Then the customer can see exactly what they're paying for, no surprises.
Bandsaw mills are usually available for hire, or even a chainsaw mill will work fine. I've sold a lot of boards from both. Low grade is a big deal to a mill, but some customers prefer the defects, "character". When you sell direct, it's whatever you and the customer agree on. Industry standard has little to do with it.

I had no trouble selling this walnut, milled with a chainsaw. I always mill for figure, not grade.

thanks but I was looking for a fast buck. The dozer injection pump went out and, worst case scenerio, $1600 for a new one. Don't expect this tree to near pay for it but trying to round up bucks for the pump.

Fast? The boards I wanted to sell from that otherwise worthless log went in one day with a craigslist ad. The remainder are stickered here. I then deleted the ad. The buyer got full instruction on how to sticker and dry the boards. I was happy to get half of what you need for your pump.

You might have had the cash in your pocket already. Looking for a peculiar buyer takes far more time than letting one find you. Photos of the product help immensely. That photo worked perfectly.

Good luck.
