Welcome to the Log Finder Site!

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture Log Finder Website provides a statewide networking tool for people who want trees cut down and people that want to utilize the wood to create a value added product. The goal is a user friendly website that will facilitate improved utilization of hardwood and softwood timber. Buyers can search for sellers or post information about the type of logs they want. Sellers can search for potential buyers, or post information about the type of trees they have. Users can post photographs of their trees or equipment for tree removal and hauling.

Sellers can list anything from a single hardwood tree such as a black walnut in their front yard in Centerville to hundreds of ponderosa pine, including mountain pine beetle infested pine, in the Black Hills.

Buyers can list the type of trees they want, where they can work, and their capabilities for cutting trees and hauling them away.

Use of this site is limited to people interested in providing or procuring raw materials such as standing trees or logs. It is not intended for marketing of wood products such as lumber, wood chips, shavings, or other value added wood products.

Personal contact information will not be displayed, but can be shared through the secure messaging system.

This is a government run website. Users should not expect privacy. The Department of Agriculture can review all postings, and can delete or refuse to post inappropriate content.
