    Hmmm Those yellow ones look like they might be flippers... I don't suppose anyone would like some yellow and black saws would they? 00z0z_2ksiYmIZmVw_1200x900.jpg 00d0d_i6uxi2NLc3b_1200x900.jpg 01414_4am1eaGMLU2_1200x900.jpg 00101_4XvpAh0X6ic_1200x900.jpg 01010_2LKeuOcXAM0_1200x900.jpg

    Oh man, was just on CL yesterday and someone thought that they were going to get $50 apiece for some crooked walnut that couldn't have been anymore than 10-12 inches diameter @ 5-6ft long. Maybe $50 for the whole lot, certainly not apiece.

    If you let them get big enough, there is some serious money to be made stabbing out black walnut.

    Ahh ok, that makes a lot more sense lol, it's even more valuable down here in the south because black walnut is bad about getting heart rot in our warm and humid climate.

    not up here in the finger lakes region... it is actually annoying because nothing except poison ivy and wild rose bushes grow near it rendering your land useless...

    Walnuts taste good, but not as good as hickory nuts.

    I feel for you, got a biggish history paper due and I have to be stuck inside on this wonderful day. Really want to be outside tinkering.
