    interesting and definitely a needed concept. maybe the lumberjack can sell things such noteblocks or jukeboxes, since they require wood to make. Or even petrified wood and its variants.

    Actually I'm not against wood or sapling trades, but it would be pretty sad to get only 10 for 1 emerald. Since wood's really common, 1 emerald for a stack of saplings & 1 emerald for 24 wood(& stripped wood) wouldn't be bad, especially if you are in the early game or have an emerald farm. But there could be other useful things to trade with. What if Lumberjacks could sell wood carvings of MC mobs? That would be really cool. That's the only way you would get them. Lumberjacks are more experienced with wood than the others, so they could have custom wood items like that. And since you can't un-craft wood items, maybe trading emeralds would give you a lot more fences, slabs, & stairs than you would get with trading normal wood. Maybe you would get a stack and a half of fences or slabs for an emerald. Yes that's cheap, but so is wood itself. Anything lower than that might not be worth trading with.

    You would give the lumberjack wood and saplings for emeralds because villagers receive raw materials and give finished products. Also getting 24 wood would be so unbalanced that no one would ever chop down trees again, and you can craft them into sticks to trade with a flecther and get an infinite profit.

    My son and I were just talking over a similar idea. Lumberjack/woodcutter/carpenter villager could buy/sell logs and planks at low levels and level up to signs, fences, axes, and rarer woods. Maybe even throw stripped logs in the mix somewhere.

    I think you're thinking too small. Why stop at wood stairs and slabs? It could also be used to craft fences and fence gates with a 1:1 ratio, the same way you can make walls with a stonecutter. As it stands, you end up losing a plank (more if you count sticks as half a plank) when you craft fences or gates. It could also be used for trapdoors, which currently require six planks for just two trapdoors, and maybe even regular doors as well.

    I also don't see much of a problem with a villager type that sells wood. As someone who uses a lot of wood, it's pretty hard to get enough of it without a large-scale tree farm. There are villagers you can buy food from, which hardly anyone is going to do, but it's an option. Buying wood from a villager would just be another option for how to get it.
