there is a local guy who would like to sell a rather large black walnut tree. i want to make him an offer, but need a way to calculate approximately how many bf i can get out of the tree based on its dimensions.
i know the yield will vary, based on the method in which it is sawn, but let's keep it simple and just assume that it will be plain sawn. what would be a fair board foot price to offer? keep in mind, i would be doing all the harvesting and transport myself, as well as clean-up, and the local bandmill charges approximately 22 cents/bf.
