I want to cut down several large Pecan trees around my house and was wondering if anyone had a use for them. I have around 10 or so close to my house ranging in size, but they are all at least 50'+. I never burn wood so I don't know if they would be good for that or not. I was just wanting a little more info before I decided to tackle this job and get some input.
You can get top dollar for pecan wood. One BBQ joint I know of will buy pecan from wherever they can get it for $100/rick. The lumber is supposed to bring a good price, so you might try to find someone with a mill.
Will do, how big around are they? I used to have the only solid oak privacy fence in the neighborhood at my last house.
Well this is only a best guess, but I would say the majority of them are 3'-4' in diameter and one is just huge. It's almost twice the size of all the others. I can get some better measurements tonight though.
I just talked to a guy that used to live at our house when he was growing up and he was telling me which trees his Dad had planted and which ones are wild. The wild one's are twice the size of the planted ones. Don't know if I want to cut them down now after hearing the history of them.
I have three huge pecan trees and two black walnut trees in my back yard. I love the shade during the heat it is always cool under them. The small limbs that are always falling off, I use in my smoker. I have a good supply of squirrels also, lol.
