So a solar company is going around trying to lease land up for $1000/acre/year.
Dad owns a 27 acre piece that most of it would be better off in solar panels, wet spots everywhere, seeps on the hillsides, low spots that more often than not flood every year and hilltops that are very similar to concrete.
However they will also lease as much of the woods as we’d let em and probably chip the entire thing.
Before they cut anything I’d be going thru and getting the best red oaks and cherry left in them to have cut into boards for later use as trim and flooring as I remodel more of the farm house.
Question is this, and I’m sure it depends on the log a lot as well, but how long could I have boards cut before cupping and twisting would be prevalent in most of it? For flooring longer the better, less joints, for trim not such a big deal.
