    Does anyone have an approx weight table for logs of different speices.
    What would a 12" 9 foot Red Cedar log weigh, or the same in red or white oak. I'm trying to determine how many logs I can load on the trailer without breaking an axle, max load is 3,000 lbs. I'm getting another trailer but I have to fixit up first before I can haul with it yet.

    Buddy of mine has acreage with mostly oak and red cedar and a few pecans, and is possibly going to sell the land to a developer, so I'm gonna try to stock up on logs if I can.

    Your log should weigh between 300-323.
