Re: Timber weight and m3
Can I put my two pence worth in? I find with coppicing where I do each Lott is different ref terrain, access etc... This effects the costings of each woodland and this is how I price my stacks. I take all the factors like time, fuel and extraction into consideration and then sell based on my figures. I have very good deals in place with the land owner which is either payment is the timber felled in return for coppicing service or we give them a percentage of the sale value. Ie one acre next to a good artic access track will cost less than extracting one acre three miles to an artic access. I always sell by vol not tonnage and make the hauler or customer aware of this, that way you can sell green or seasoned no fuss i find it works so long as the communication is good.
