Walnut Price-
How much is my Walnut Tree Worth?

 You may have heard that the tree growing in your yard is worth a lot of money. Indeed walnut wood is highly prized and can also be quite valuable. 

Although the costs associated with tree harvesting have risen,
walnut prices have remained stable.

Is it A Good Time To Harvest?

Our best estimate is that this trend will continue. Walnut prices should continue to reflect it's premium qualities.

We do not foresee any reduction in harvesting costs.  Possibly there may be drastic increases at any time.



If you live anywhere in Michigan we could pay from
$500.00 up to $1,000.00
for any walnut tree that qualifies for our program. (no one that we know of anywhere else is doing this)


 
What Type of Trunk?

A twisted or knotty trunk does not have much value when it comes to timber (think of a board - long and straight).


What has highest value is tall and thick with few or no  defects.  The only part of a tree that we are interested in is the stem - the trunk up to the lowest part of the first branches.

Notice the "flatter" ridge tops  than below

Tops of the ridges are more "pointy" than on the walnut

There needs to be least 9 feet of clearance between the ground and first branches. The diameter needs to be at least 24 inches at chest height.

If your tree does not meet these qualifactions it may still have some timber value, but not enough to cover the costs associated with harvesting and transporting it.
