I don't recommend you cut the trees down and let them sit there.  I know
someone who cut the trees down in winter, and didn't remove the bark, when
we started milling the trees the following winter worms had invaded the
logs and made them close to worthless.
50-50 split for milling sound like a good deal for both parties.
