Selling 50 Pine Trees (IL)

We have about 50 very tall, straight pine trees that we would like to remove someday from our property. It looks like they would make good telephone poles. Who do we contact to sell or harvest these? Would any of the power companies want this type of tree?

Sorry Linda, but you're not likely going to find anyone in central Illinois interested in buying or harvesting a mere 50 pine trees.

You may want to contact a custom sawmill operator to determine if they are interested in utilizing pine for any of their projects:
