If its Aircraft grade spruce it will fetch big coin.
About twenty years ago I was living on the coast and my boss bought a spruce log about 5ft across and 20ft long, he paid 5k for it.
Got it cut up to aircraft sizes and ended getting his money back.

If they were getting the bucks they say they are do you think they'd be on national TV making idiots of themselves? Why? For the money.

$20/Cord in the National Forests, is overpriced by Double.

I Don't know about then and there, but I Can get permits for up to 5 cords/household for $10/Cord in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

The Forest Service often posts about easy wood that they want removed. This year they fell over 300 standing dead off Rd 4410 they wanted gone, we got about a cord of it before the Forest closed due to fire danger, then the forest opened and we are dealing with an illness/Death in the Family. Where we were cutting is about 5200-5300 foot elevation, I don't know if we will get back up there before the Snow does, might be too late already, it was nice stove ready wood though, and we still have a couple of cords worth of tags still.

Last year they had a lot of blow down in Tilley Jane Campground, some very nice wood there too, parked the truck, trailer and splitter practically next to the logs, nice picnic tables clean vault restrooms, just no running water, I guess you can't have everything. It doesn't get much better than that.
