Sawmill Timbers and Lumber 
We have two mills that produce timbers.  These products are sawn from red pine (Norway), white pine and jack pine.
Timbers, up to 20' length 

Timbers are cut on the circle saw carriage mill in lengths from 8 feet to 20 feet.  The pine species are red pine (Norway) and white pine.  Maximum cuts are 12 inches by 16 inches.

Timbers can be rough cut or surfaced 4 sides (S4S).  Maximum size for S4S is 14 inches x 8 inches.  This would require a minimum 20 inch diameter log.  This product is normally sent to value-added pressure treater.

Timbers 42' Length

Timbers are cut on a special band saw carriage mill in lengths up to 42 feet.  The pine species are red pine (Norway) and white pine.  Maximum cuts are 12 inches by 16 inches with a tolerance of less than 1/8 inch.  The pictured timbers are 6 inches x 6 inches, 42 feet in length.

Rough Sawn Lumber

Timbers and lumber can have the sawtooth marks on the wood to give a definite rough sawn look.  These marks can be more pronounced depending on your specifications.  Available in both circle saw and band saw surfaces.

Sawmill Custom Products 
We have two mills that produce these custom products.  These products are sawn from red pine, white pine and jack pine.
HT Squares and Lumber

Heat treating (HT) certification allows you, the customer, to use this wood for export packaging (crating and pallet parts).  Our certification is through Northeastern Lumber Manufacturer Association (NeLMA). HT is performed in our kilns which is set at 180 degrees for 24 hours.  This ensures that the wood is pest-free under International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures code 15 (ISPM 15).
