Cost of an Oak tree
by cmchsmjm • Sat 09 Jul 2016 17:54

Hello good people,

my brother would like to make a porch for our house and has suggested asking our neighbour (farmer, owns 65 hectares of woodland and grazing land) if he would sell us an oak tree!

My furniture making brother would then do the necessaries with the said tree and turn it into a lovely bespoke porch.

My question is: How much should I expect to pay for an oak tree?

How much for an oak tree? After reading this French information - prix d'un chĂȘne - I'm afraid much. Especially the "campagnards" are fond of oak, furniture, kitchen, you name it, so your neighbour probably knows a lot about lumber prices.

In my neck of the woods (Fresselines), about 70 euros for a good tree. But wouldn't it be best to buy seasoned wood?

He would chop, prep, season then build. Most of his furniture and structural work is done this way. All very clever and way beyond my skill set!!!!
