    Hey guys, just wanted to give you an update on the bid. I did a lot more research online and unfortunately I found A LOT of posts where people were CLEAR CUTTING lots for $2,500 an acre. Average price was anywhere from $4,000-$6,000 an acre to clear. I don't know how they were doing it but there were so many sources. So I reduced my bid to around $300 a tree.

    You could do that job at 300 a tree IF you sale the marketable timber. Hardwood is high right now. Pine yea not so much until you jump up to grade saw logs.

    I don't fall trees but $300 seems awfully low.

    I’m just posting to be updated. I’m curious as well. $300 a tree seems kinda low, but I hope you make a good profit.
