Looking for information to sale White Oak Trees

Asked July 20, 2020, 6:30 PM EDT

I have several White Oak trees in my yard. I am looking to sell them. I talked to a friend that said a company came and purchased his red oak tree and his white oak trees, but he could not remember the name of the company. I read an article on this website about the pricing of trees. I have called local stores, however they did not have any information for me on the sale of the trees. I contacted DNR forestry and they said to try out of state timber mills or forestry companies. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,
Unfortunately I do not know of a timber company that would come out for a handful of trees to purchase them. I will forward your question to my forestry colleagues within MSUE to see if they have any input.

Hello,
Justin is right in that most timber harvesters will not come out for a few trees b/c of the high cost of transporting equipment for the low monetary return.
However, there is a program in SE Michigan called "Urban Wood" and you may be able to make a connection there:

I'm not sure how responsive they are, but it may be worth the time to inquire.
Wishing you all the best!
