re: Cypress Tree - Woodworker Needed! - gumbo2176
Better not be in a hurry as it will take a good while to dry out that cypress to be able to be used for woodworking, especially if no kiln is used. I do a lot of woodworking and prefer to use cypress, but have no machinery to mill trees into useable wood....

[quote]Best deal I got so far is clearing for the wood.[/quote] Doesn't sound like a bad deal to me. That is if after they cut they remove stumps and totally clear the land. Figuring what it would cost for you in time, heavy equipment rental and man hours, that sounds very reasonable to me....
