Question: So i would not mind doing it,Id love to open a small sawmill and cut custom timbers, but I don't have any source of trees. So I would have to log other peoples properties and buy the logs, this is were the question come in. Im only 16 right now and I cant seem to get a correct way of making this work in my mind. Here it goes. If i were to go log someone's property I would quote them a price, then i would ask them how much they wanted for the logs and deduct that from the price that i quoted? right? or would I buy the logs and remove them for free because they are now my logs and I have to take them? And of course this one is not to hard, I give them a price to cut the trees and they say take the logs they don't care what I do with them. And then there is people that just dont pay and just give me the logs but I have to cut them down first? What im talking about is not logging big plots of land, im talking of logging some trees off small properties that people dont want, im talking when people have ten acres, and they want 5 acres of trees gone i would go in cut them down and do what ever i need to do to buy the logs from them. Thanks!

Loggers usually pay land owners for the logs. They calculate what to pay based on what they can sell them for as timber, pulp or firewood and what it costs to remove them. This is usually on larger properties with several acres of trees. Tree removal services work on smaller properties to remove or trim one or two dead trees and charge the owners the cost of cutting. In those cases, the owner may want to keep the logs as firewood or may allow you to have it for free. You will need to learn how to log and remove trees, either at a landscape school or by apprenticing. Part of your study will include how to price and how to manage the business side. BTW, if do open a sawmill, loggers will sell logs to you that they have cut down. If you really are interested in the sawmill and not so interested in logging, that would be the answer.

Sylvester Originally Answered: What is the oldest tree in the world? Is the Earth young if the tree is thousands of years old?
Fossils don’t come with labels telling you how old they are. So, what about radiometric dating methods—don’t they prove millions of years? Well, these are far from infallible—they are indirect methods based on quite a few assumptions, and evolutionary geologists themselves will often not accept a radiometric date unless they think it’s correct (i.e. it matches what they already believe). There are plenty of scientists who question their accuracy. For instance, the “RATE” project has discovered several striking examples of contradictions in these dating methods. If you want, you can get their book or movie called Thousands...Not Billions and learn about some of their remarkable results. If you do a bit of research, you will find that there is a lot of evidence of radiometric dating not being accurate (like conflicting dates, or dates of millions of years for lava flows that occurred in the past few hundred years or even decades). OK, is there evidence of younger dates for dinosaur fossils? Oh yeah (these are easy to look up). In 1981, scientists identified unfossilized dinosaur bones which had been found in Alaska 20 years earlier. Dr. Philip Currie (an evolutionist) wrote about this and some similar finds, “An even more spectacular example was found on the North Shore of Alaska, where many thousands of bones lack any significant degree of permineralization. The bones look and feel like old cow bones, and the discoverers of the site did not report it for twenty years because they assumed they were bison, not dinosaur, bones.” As Dr. Margaret Helder has said, “How these bones could have remained in fresh condition for 70 million years is a perplexing question. One thing is certain: they were not preserved by cold. Everyone recognizes that the climate in these regions was much warmer during the time when the dinosaurs lived.” In 1990 a sample of various dinosaur bones were sent to the University of Arizona for a “blind” Carbon-14 dating procedure. “Blind” in the sense that they didn’t tell them what the bones were. The oldest date they got was 16 thousand years. Now I don’t think they are even that old, but that’s a far cry from the millions of years evolutionists suggest. If dinosaurs became extinct more than 65 million years ago, there should be no carbon-14 left in their bones. Evolutionist of course say the samples must have been contaminated. In 1990, Scientists from the University of Montana found T. rex bones that were not totally fossilized and even found what appeared to be blood cells in them. Dr. Mary Schweitzer said, “It was exactly like looking at a slice of modern bone. But, of course, I couldn’t believe it. … The bones, after all, are 65 million years old. How could blood cells survive that long?” How indeed? And then in 2005, they found an even greater discovery. Science Daily website said (March 25, 2005): “Dr. Mary Schweitzer . . . has succeeded in isolating soft tissue from the femur of a 68-million-year-old dinosaur. Not only is the tissue largely intact, it’s still transparent and pliable, and microscopic interior structures resembling blood vessels and even cells are still present.” As Dr. David Menton said, “It certainly taxes one’s imagination to believe that soft tissue and cells could remain so relatively fresh in appearance for the tens of millions of years of supposed evolutionary history.” Wouldn’t that be a hit for the meat industry if we could figure out how to preserve meat for so long?

First of all, carbon dating. Carbon dating is only good to about 50,000 or 60,000 years, so even if we did have a dinosaur's skin (which we don't) we couldn't determine its real age. And it only works with things that were once alive, like wood or cloth, not with fossils. Bring in a piece of Noah's Ark or the Cross and then you'd have something! (The Shroud of Turin has already been shown to be a fraud). Now as to the tree. If you believe the scientists, the earth is something like 9 billion years old but was only capable of supporting life for the last few hundred million years. Life began with single-celled animals in the sea, then plants, then fish, then animals, etc., in fact Genesis mostly agrees with this progression. So trees, as we know them, have only been around for a few hundred million years. Now, in order for a tree to live even 1000 years there has to be a steady climate, constant air pressure, temperature and other conditions like moisture, minerals in the soil, etc. The earth is still in a state of flux, cooling and heating, continents moving around, etc. As late as 10,000 years ago most of North America was covered by glaciers! Finally, as has been pointed out, a tree can only live so long. 3000 or 4000 years really is a long time if you think about it!

Oldest tree on earth is ~ 4800 years oldhttp://rawstory.com/news/afp/Age_shall_n... Older trees are petrified and also in the form of coal. Trees have a life limit, like all living things http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lon... http://www.reuters.com/article/scienceNe... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dendrochronology Carbon dating is reliable, except for very accurate as in 50 years all radioactive isotopes decay at a known rate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_dating http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon-14 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerator_mass_spectrometry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiometric_dating Humans are ~ 200,000 years old http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human Dinosaur extinction occurred with large impact in Yucatan peninsula. created ice age. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fossil_sites http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicxulub_Crater http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cretaceous-Tertiary_extinction_event http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permian%E2%80%93Triassic_extinction_event http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_age Age of earth is ~ 4.5 billion years old http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_the_Earth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prehistoric_life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geologic_time_scale To below: you still have difference b/w dinosaurs and early mammals then large mammals such as mammoths, giant swaths, saber tooth etc. Without even taking in the science of radioactive isotope decay. You have geologic evidence of Pangaea (one land mass) and have tectonic evidence all-around the world for ash deposit at the same time from one impact event. You have cyclical burial of snow in ice cores that date back hundreds of thousands of years like tree rings. You have the Hawaiian island chain and the plate movement and volcanic activity that made them; you have oil deposits from inland seas and fluvial deposits and fossilized vegetation in the Gobi dessert, etc. The evidence is more than enough. If you want to assume that all this is possible in the span of 6000 years and that man was with them the whole time while these major things where going on, impossible. Make up of Canada for instance was started more than 1 billion years ago called the Canadian shield is made up of granite, to the west are the plains which are made of sedimentary rocks. Rocky Mountains have lime stone (calcium carbonate) which comes from coral reef so does the top of mount Everest in the Himalayas and the dolomites in Italian alps. First major oil discovery in Canada was hitting a pinnacle reef 2000m below ground once again limestone. Foundation of Alberta oil reserves are based on Ammonites. Tundra area or permafrost was once swampland like everglades now frozen solid. Australia once was made up of nearly all mountain areas. with an inland sea. Canada and the US had and inland sea as well runnng through Alberta to Texas. US military has mapped ocean floor discovered magnetite layers are pointing in opposite bands or strips, meaning metal in rocks aligned in the direction of magnetic north pole, shows that earths poles have changed many times in the past and stayed changed for hundreds of thousand of years before changing again. There is much more to discuss but perhaps you should go to a dinosaur museum. There were native Indians living in Canada without horses and with only bows and arrows and a hatchet do you think they would have been able to take on an Albertasaurus or a Tyrannosaurus rex? Or for that matter why are there no archeological sites, where these guys ate these things or even mammoths. They all were in Canada at one time. You would have everyone believe that someone has feasible dinosaur tissue. Wow I think I watched that movie Jurassic Park I think it was called, and they had to go and get their DNA from insects petrified in amber. Buy the way maybe you should look up amber and how it is formed, why it is a precious stone and how long it takes to create. But I agree it would be great if we could reproduce dinosaurs. Is it possible that some species of dinosaurs survived into human time? I think that is feasible. It seems that most ancient cultures in central Asia and central Europe such as the Hattian and Chinese as well as the Mayan in South America had a belief in some sort of dragon like serpent. Seeing how they were far apart and that folk lore is usually based on a concrete event, I would have to say there were most probably a possibility of some sort of species of reptile that was able to survive although not in large quantities.

You'd be better off starting a tree removal service. A lot of home owners use them to get rid of trees that are getting to big and fear they may damage their homes in a storm. In that situation they pay you to remove the tree and you keep the logs but you also have to clean up and remove all the debris.

Payton Originally Answered: In Genesis, what [type] of tree was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?
There is certainly a lot going on in this passage. Much more, even, than you have pointed out. But I think your naming the fig as the forbidden fruit is wide of the mark. And my reasons for this come from the text itself. In her conversation with the serpent, the woman says that she is forbidden to eat from or even touch the tree. I've seen folks make a lot of this, claiming that she had distorted God's command. But I don't buy that. I believe she understood exactly what God meant when He gave the prohibition. So here's the problem. According to you, they hid their shame with an emblem of its source. It would be like wearing a sign advertising their disobedience. That just doesn't ring true. Shame simply doesn't work that way. The very last thing they would do is make clothes out of the forbidden tree. Still, this is a very good question. It's refreshing to actually talk about the text without having to defend it against skeptics. peace
Payton Originally Answered: In Genesis, what [type] of tree was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?
I think it was a fruit tree...anything beyond that is pure speculation. If you're suggesting it was a fig tree just because they sewed clothing out of fig leaves, I would say that is HIGHLY unlikely. I imagine that if someone stole some fruit from a particular tree, that the LAST place they would hide is around that tree...and the bible does make it clear that the tree was unique (one of a kind). Ergo, I would say that the ONLY tree you could reasonably eliminate from consideration is a fig tree...and, of course, any of the many hybrid trees we've developed since then (e.g., a "tangelo"). Edit...speaking of modern trees, I would think that we can also eliminate ANY fruit tree that still exists on this planet...after all, that tree didn't walk out of the garden with them...it existed only in the garden of Eden!
