  • Ok now that you took off the straight parts of the trees for lumber, let me tell you about a great use for rest of logs that are too thin for lumber or too crooked to use, or the large bases near the root balls. 1. Rustic furniture makers love to use slabs from near the root balls of hard wood and cedar wood to make tables. They also like to use cleaned up root balls for table bases. 2. Smaller diameter hard wood logs that are still green are perfect growing gourmet mushrooms on. First you cut them into logs about 3 feet long depending on the girth of them. (They need to be lightweight enough that you can pick one up and hit it the end of it on the ground.) Try to keep the bark intact. Now take a small group of them and bind them together with some bailing wire. Take that to a deep spot in the creek to soak for several days. Then pull the bundle out of the creek and take it where you can line them up standing on one end. While they’ve been soaking, go online to and order bags of 100 Shiitaki mushroom plugs and any other species that you like and/or can sell in your area. I highly recommend Lions Mane mushrooms. Also order some cheese wax. You will also need a drill with a bit the same size as the plugs, and a rubber mallet and a nail set. And a small sauce pan to melt the cheese wax in and either a metal straw or a small spoon to drip the wax into the holes after the plugs have been pounded into the logs. On each of your soaked logs, drill 4 holes in a diamond pattern. Roll the log slightly so that you can use one of the side holes as the start of the next diamond ♦️ ♦️ ♦️ ♦️ ♦️ so each diamond is touching via the shared side hole all the way around the log. Then do the pattern for the next row using the top hole of the bottom diamond to be the bottom hole of the next row. ♦️ ♦️♦️ of diamonds ♦️ ♦️♦️ ♦️ ♦️♦️ until the entire log is covered by holes in this pattern. Like this. Pass the log to your helper to pound the plugs into the hole about a quarter inch below the surface of the bark, (use the nail set) while the next log is drilled. Then the first log gets passed to another helper, who fills that quarter inch hole with the melted cheese wax. Then when all of the logs are done, stack them in a shady spot close to a water source in the shape a square outline like a miniature log cabin without chinking so that there is an air gap between each log and also a big space between the logs and soil. This space helps keep unwanted wild mushroom spores from contaminating your now valuable mushroom logs. Be sure to spray or soak them with water in when ever they start to look dry and keep them in the shade. Starting next fall you will have tons of shiitake mushrooms. Tip to get the shiitake mushrooms to produce next fall, take a log and hold it vertically and drop it at least a foot onto a hard surface like concrete after it has had a good soaking. The Japanese do this “thumping “ and it seems to help them produce new mushrooms. These logs will produce for many years. You can also sell these mushroom logs locally to people who want to grow their own mushrooms. One year old mushroom logs retail for between $20.00 and $45.00 each depending on size. Now if your family would like the taste of some crab/lobster to go with the filet mignon flavor of some of that deer backstrap, you can do the exact same procedure using plugs of Lions Mane mushrooms which taste just like shellfish. Cook the Lions Mane mushrooms in some butter and lemon juice and you have surf and turf for those special occasions. These mushrooms are also very very good for you. You can also do this with Oyster mushrooms, Chicken of the Woods etc. But always cook ALL mushrooms. Even the ones from the grocery stores. Raw mushrooms have a bad chemical that is destroyed by cooking while the good nutrients and chemicals stay good when cooked (except for magic mushrooms which do not grow on wood and for the time being are still illegal) If you have plugs left over, keep them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. They last for many months. There are UZworld videos showing the procedure I just explained. Last tip. Keep the Oyster mushrooms away from the other mushroom logs. They put out tons of spores (mushroom seeds) that will take over the more valuable mushroom logs Also keep in mind mushroom mycelium that grows inside these hardwood logs causes beautiful patterns that wood turners prize. You can make very good money 💰 for selling Spalted Maple, Oak, Birch, Cherry Hickory, Poplar, Beechwood and other hardwoods. Skip the evergreens for wood turners and mushrooms. The only really good mushrooms that grow on or under evergreens are Miataki (Hen of the Woods) Which are very very expensive. Hope this helps you to see all of the profits you have sitting in your brush pile.

Your tractor equipment makes this an easy job to get done during the colder weather and you are ready when you make a deal for a saw mill. Love that you can do great things like this. Oh no there are some great trees in this pile! Nice straight trees!!! Wow

  • I'm with you Daniel a sawmill just makes sense you get almost free lumber out of your wasted trees . You'll still have the slab sides for firewood plus all the tops and smalls . You can also custom saw for others if you decide that's something you want to try . There's always tree damage after ice storms in Oklahoma that people would like to harvest lumber out of to have a keep sake from the tree that grandpa planted or the tree I proposed to my wife under .....whatever . You are a great teacher showing your kids not only how to survive but rather how to thrive instead, we need way more parents like the both of you !

  • The price of lumber is through the roof. And people will pay a premium for the live edge. Go for it. It's a waste to let that expensive lumber go to waste. There's money to be made. And then if you use up all your own wood, others can come and get their stuff milled. Money.

  • Most people forget the tree tops have a lot of usable firewood. Takes more work being smaller but it is there. The non-usable top parts can be cut smaller and piled up for small animal habitats.

  • Daniel if you'll cutting wood every day or for a business then its good investment to buy a saw mill Buy if you'll going to use a saw mill one or twice a month then rent one first to see how much time you will use it. THAT IS A big investment. SAWmill an cost $7,000-$50,000 There not cheap. And you don't want to buy or rent one that is not up to good working standards. God Bless.

  • Daniel, any chance you could get a 7xlt? I'd love to own won. I'd also love to get a 4xl, 3xl and 2xl donkey poodle ranch hoodie. Please let me know if it's possible. Thank you and love the videos and family

  • Yes you need a sawmill 1 it will save money on buying lumber. Your not wasting money just burning it up. 2 You can sell it if you git to much on hand with all the trees you have a sawmill is a must have. Just so you know win you are out cutting logs git as you can an Straight so if a log is 11ft an you want a 10ft log leve it at 11ft or just 4" longer the you want so after you mill the log then you can cut the ends on a chop saw to make the ends straight and you will have the 10ft log at the end. I hope I helped you a little.

Simple living Alaska UZworldrs use a chainsaw with a guide to rough sawn lumber, which is also amazing in addition to the kind of mills I think you are describing. Apparently the chainsaw mill is pretty common up in Alaska but I don’t know about here in Oklahoma. Either way, I’m excited to see what you do!

It can cut 26 inch diameter logs by 12.5 foot long longer with extensions. For around 3500.00 dollers
