Whats up man. You want wood? Or you want a place to get rid of it?

Looking for log truck rates, 30 yard container uncut fire wood rates, and 30 yard container stump/debris rates. You could say I have a lot of wood on the ground...lol. Just bought a T750 with grapple. Trying to find out what people are paying out there.

I found a guy with a grapple truck who wanted 600/day plus i pay the dumps. Everything else(stumps logs branches chips) I've been dumping myself for 65/ ton or 20/yard depending where i go. I've been meaning to call my buddy who does rolloffs and trucking for rates. I'll let you know when i do.

What towns is the wood in?

Brookville. I've been told 100-200 per load of nice logged oak. 400 30 yd firewood container and 500-700 for 30yd stumps and garbage. Spoke to a mill today that will charge 125/hour to pick up logs of 8.5' or better and 55/hr for metal detection and removal....then they will calculate value and credit towards the cost of removal. Im trying to figure out how to value and grade the oak I have here....mill said they're way to busy to check and price a 50 tree job.

Nice I've been out to jericho and great neck lately.
I've seen some guys who want logs for firewood but theyre out in suffolk. I've figured it out a dozen ways myself an it comes down to too much time. I've just been billing in the dumps and dumping it. Plus i usually run mixed loads
