Hey, have any folks bought any cypress lately? Our local sawyer just had 20 truckloads of logs dropped off to cut and sell. He wants $0.90 a bf. I have no idea if this is a good price or not. I do know however, that he'll let customers pick both the log and the specific boards out of the log. Some of the logs he has sitting there have to be 28" at the top and damn near 30 feet long, most straight as an arrow. As of yesterday afternoon, you could easily distinguish heartwood and sapwood at the ends. A very good learning lab for some of the characteristics that Bob S. and others discuss regularly. In fact, my plan at lunch today is to look up a few posts in the archive and print them to take with me as I'm walking the yard.
Anyway, back to the question at hand...anyone bought cypress recently? If so, what did you pay?
Thanks and Happy New Year, Ethan
