Alder, Maple and Ash Log Buyers –

Looking for
a few good logs.

Your logs are the lifeblood of our hardwod mill.
We are always ready to purchase quality Alder and Maple trees, and almost no stand is too small – or too big. We offer a full range of services for everyone from the small landowner to the commercial forester. From permits, to trucking, to tax implications – we have the staff and experience to maximize your timber value.

Alder and maple trees lose their leaves in the winter.

If they stay green all year, then they are probably a fir or cedar.

If your stand is mixed (most are actually) we can selectively harvest just the Alders and Maples or come up with a plan to harvest everything and bring the other species to a different mill.

If your stand is just fir or cedar, then give us a call and we can talk about your options.

Well, let’s find out. Answer the questions below and we’ll give you an idea if your alder or maple are worth some dough.
