    Forestry Service

    Has anyone gotten their trees from Oregon? Is there anything that I should say when talking to the forestry people when trying to get some trees from them? I wish to start building the summer of 2019. However I need to get the trees first and allow them to dry. My son and I will be working together.
    Thank you in advance.

    I'd get my foundation first. Too darned easy to get sidetracked and let those drying logs turn into rotted firewood. I sent you a PM, Kirby.
    And you thought he was unteachable!

    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    I'd second this. I waited until I had logs to get the foundation because I was harvesting the logs myself. I didn't know what size home I could build until I had my logs. I guess if you order your logs, you can specify the size, so in that case, you would build your foundation first. Still, looking back, I knew no matter what, I was going to build a 40x40, so I should have gotten the concrete out of the way and then started cutting trees. I have 20/20 vision- just doesn't always work in both directions....
