Default Value of Cedar

So after the hurricane came through I found 4 or 5 cedar trees that blew over at the house. They are from I would guess 8 to 12 inches at the stump. Is there a market or any value to them for turkey calls? I was planning to go trim them then cut them at the stump and get the logs out.

Smoking or non-smoking?

If they are old homesite cedars use a metal detector and carefully check every inch. They are notorious to be full of metal that will wreck a saw. I rejected plenty back in my sawmill days.
Maybe some one on here interested if they are true eastern red cedars.

Not sure of any value but I might be interested in a section say four ft long that's 8 to 12 in. I would want it to be as round as possible though.

Hit me up if/when you decide to do something.
