I am curious about the way this is marketed, by the pound. Please correct me if I make any mathematical errors here. According to my experience (charts to back it up of course), for example, a 22’ X10’ log would weigh right at 1500 lbs. Using Doyle scale for milling that same log would yield 200 bft…or starting at $3.75 bft in log form at $.50 a pound ? I can only assume that includes bark too at $.50 a pound as a bonus.

Just asking, not trying to offend. I am in the sawmill business I don’t want to miss any new trends. If I can sell my logs for more money by the pound and not have to grade saw/kiln dry them and still make more $ per bft..I am all in !
