    White Pine logs

    So I've spend the last week clearing our lot for a house and have cut down a large amount of white pine logs. Not straight or decent enough for any type of wood. I kept most of them 12 ft or longer and have a large pile, probably 25 or so logs. Now what do i do with them?? Any way to get rid of them other than just dumping them into a pile and leaving them to rot???

    Diameter?

    Perhaps rough saw and use as accent wood, fence posts, landscaping, etc?

    They are all 10 inches or more in diameter. I asked our excavation person and he wants to charge 400.00 per load to remove them

    Give away?

    I'm not sure of your location but Woodmizer (sawmill company) keeps a register of sawmill owners doing custom work. If there is one in your area, they might either take the logs off your hands or possibly be willing to saw them on shares where you keep some of the wood. Check Woodmizer.com for custom sawyers or you may have to call them.

    A lot depends on the quality of the logs. Larger, straight logs have value. Small crooked logs cost to dispose of.

    Small to saw

    Most of those are fairly small to saw for lumber. I only count 4, maybe 5 logs that I would put on the mill. Even those are not really going to produce much in the way of lumber unless I'm really missing the scale.

    You can try giving them to a custom sawyer. It's a long shot but costs nothing. Carvers, particularly chainsaw carvers might be interested as well.

    I would just burn them in a fire pit. (Cut Up) or if you have room and it's not a hazard just burn them all in a pile on wet day.

    Don't know what part of the country you're in, but on a wood burning forum I visit people will jump at free firewood posted on Craigslist so you could try that. Yes its pine, and doesn't have as many BTUs as hardwood, but if its seasoned it will burn just the same.

    Donate them to someone or an organization that helps people needing firewood for heating this winter. Then take a tax deduction.
