  • Traveling Sawmill

    I am cutting down a big oak tree in my yard and am considering having it cut down into useable lumber and firewood. Recently I saw a link on this site to search for someone with a machine to resaw the tree into planks but for the life of me cant find that posting. If anyone knows what I am talking about and can post the link it would be much appreciated.

    I did try using woodfinder.com but I never have much luck with that search engine.

            You can contact woodmizer and they will get you in touch with someone with one of their portable sawmills.

                Definately interested. I am looking to have one or two 8-10 foot sections cut into planks. The tree has a tall straight trunk about two feet in diameter.

                    Transportation would be tricky as I dont have a truck. A friend that is helping take down the tree does and would be willing, problem is his wife had twins recently so his time is in high demand.

                        That is fine they may be able to pick it up, one thing to keep in mind though, a lot of sawmills will not process wood that comes from someones backyard for fear of stiking a nail deep within, you will have to check with them first.
