A customer called us recently with several Ash Trees that have fallen prey to the emerald ash borer. A total of four trees totaling ~1,500 board feet of sawn lumber were cut in one day. Some of the tree sections were lost to rot unfortunately, but we did our best to save as much as we could. We did have the privilege of sawing one of the best Ash trees we've seen this year. At 20' long, 27" in diameter and losing only 3" to taper over it's length, this was one impressive tree.
We are always in awe of the beauty in trees; so enjoy these photos of the fallen giant. Soon, they will meet a new life as a rich floor in this customer's home.
We were recently called in by a customer in Lake Geneva, WI to give new life to a large oak on his property. This Burr Oak, a member of the White Oak section Quercus, was struck by lightning recently unfortunately bringing its days as a shade tree to a close. Estimated at ~250 years old, it measured an average of 45 inches in diameter as the base of it's trunk. We used our chainsaw mill to rip the sections in half before moving them onto the sawmill.
We enjoyed working with our customer in his father; sharing the love for preservation and conservation with fellow woodworkers. Thank you for the opportunity!
A farmer was removing a tree line that was encroaching upon his ability to maximize yields on his fields. Instead of burning all of the trees, we were able to salvage most of the sound ones for milling into lumber, here's a few shots during the process and unloading the cut lumber.
The milling process of the two Elm trees we cut down was split across different days so here are some more pictures. This was from milling the largest of the two trees we cut last week. Do you have dead trees on your property? Give us a call and turn your trees into beautiful lumber.
Our favorite part of the process is milling up the logs into lumber on our portable bandsaw sawmill. Enjoy some of the photos from the process with this slideshow.
We recently milled up some oak trees through our cost sharing program for this client. The client is in process of doing some forestry management on their property. This Oak was a bit troublesome to mill as the trunk had two main branches coming out of it and was rotten at the base. We still managed to save quite a bit of it though. Take a look at some of the pictures we snapped during the process.
A client asked us to recover the lumber in this hickory tree after it was blown over in a recent wind storm. This tree had some interesting bends in it towards the top so we had to buck the tree to get the most lumber out of it. Bucking is the process of cutting the tree into shorter logs.
Several of this clients trees were damaged in the storm and some cleanup work had already been done before we were asked to come out.
If your tree was damaged in a wind storm or needs to be taken down for other reasons, let us know first. We are ready to come out to you and turn your tree into lumber.
