The question to your letter?

They look like nice trees but must be much older than fifty years.

Here in BC they are among the lower price ones, used a lot for boat building, decking.

Lasts years and cleans up like new with little work.

Has a real high coast in the blade or cutting due to the silica in the wood.

Makes nice log homes but the price is below fir or red cedar.

Used a lot for firewood, a shame if you like wood but in BC coast its abandoned on north coast, the cheeps.

But in your letter are you wanting to sell it or want to now the board the price?
