I have a tall (over 50 ft) and straight oak tree in my back yard. I'm looking to have it removed. Someone told me that there are companies that buy these trees for flooring and furniture and other woodwork. Can anyone confirm this info?

Usually you can only get pay for trees where there is large number of trees and they are all "native".

There are several problems with urban trees. They might have metal in them and they are often in difficult places which require extra work and can possibly cause damage to nearby houses.

But there are people that recycle urban lumber. Probably the best deal that you will get is the tree removed for free.

If you contact Woodmizer they can give you a list of people that work in your area.

Also try

Select reclaimed/recycle, custom sawmilling, and onsite sawmilling - then hit search.

Also if you have anykind of recycling programs you might check with them. Also if your city has city arborist they might know.
