Need some smaller Maple Logs

I would like to get some maple logs. Smaller ones about 4" diameter and 30" long. I don't know if Maple has bark but the 4" diameter is the bare wood diameter.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

My first suggestion is that you tell us what part of world you live in. Probable you get some logs that size for free or almost free from most tree service companies in the Eastern US if you pick them up. That's barely big enough for firewood.
There are several varieties of maple, usually sugar and black maple are both called hard maple or rock maple and all the others are called soft maple.
The most common soft maples are, perhaps red maple, silver maple and pacific big leaf maple. Boxelder is also a maple though teh wood is never referred to commercially as maple.
A log 4" in diameter will have very thin bark The bark doesn't get thick and furrowed until the trunk is thicker.
I don't know of any trees that don't have bark, be assured that all maples do. It usually comes off easily as the log dries.

Two replies and lots of information. I am in Southern Arizona. I have assumed I will have to pay some shipping. Perhaps a small pallet load. I am not sure where to locate maple logs where I live. And I would never burn maple. Too precious here.
Take care Bob Arizona.

The only common commercial uses for 4" diameter maple logs are firewood and wood chips. Somebody who goes to the expense of exporting maple to somewhere it doesn't grow is only going to ship milled and dried wood. A 4" log is too small to bother milling--it's almost all waste. Logs that size never get to the mill in the first place so seriously, you'd have to contact someone who clears lots for construction or something like that.

I have 15 acres of mixed hardwoods. If you want to cut down a 4" diameter maple... Oh, AZ! Nevermind.

Where do you have the 15 acres of mixed hardwoods?
