Our Wood Services

Portable Sawmill Service
We convert logs to lumber either at your location or ours. All of our work is completed on site starting from the fallen tree. The sawmill is pulled to the job site and quickly set up. Our service is low impact, quick and efficient. When we are finished you are left a cleaned area and with a load of neatly stacked, drying lumber. Due to Covid 19 safety concerns we are not offering onsite sawing at this time! All sawing work will be completed at our shop in Mankato, MN. In a typical day we can cut 1200 square feet (board feet) of lumber or more; the exact production varies by species of the wood, size of the logs, and amount of owner help. We can also advise you how to get the most of the logs and trees you have.

New to the process? No problem; check out our Custom sawing page for an easy start. Want to know what is will cost? Check out our pricebook.

Our What To Expect page is a good place to start. We also have a Frequently Asked Questions page to help you to better understand the process. Sizing your job will help to give you a rough estimate of how much wood you'll get from your trees and how long it will take to mill the logs to lumber.
