Timber prices

Recommended Posts

hi there

as promised we are starting to bang out bee box timber at 250 x 25 2m long and 200 x25 at 2m long. Basically a box a length. we can do other dimensions as well but will be putting a few stack to gether.

we are doing poplar cryptomeria and Lawson as well as pine and mac (when it comes in) at the moment my question to you fellow bee keepers is... what is a fair and reasonable price per l/m.

 

we would like to be able to supply the bee keeper that wants to make two or three boxes or the guy that needs to put a few hundred supers together.

 

Yes we are looking to make money but at the same time this is waste from our business and for me personally I love giving trees a second life especially for the bees.

 

so consider your answers lets make it gst incl.

also quite happy to have your trailers at the yard and we can fill them straight of the mill.

 

many thanks
