As a father and son team, we selectively harvest trees on our farm in Taylorsville, North Carolina…
Woodchuck Milling was started in the spring of 2020 due to the frustration of trying to find someone to mill and dry logs that were cleared to build my parent’s house. I have done carpentry work for 15 years and had planned to build their kitchen island and doors from this wood. Finding someone who was willing to cut our small amount of logs and someone else to dry a small amount of lumber turned out to be a difficult task. It seemed that very few resources were available for “custom” sawing and drying. We decided there had to be a better way.
As a father and son team, we selectively harvest trees on our farm in Taylorsville, North Carolina to thin out forest to promote future growth or to remove dying or diseased trees. We also work with local arborists collecting logs that would usually be chipped up or split for firewood. Utilizing our Woodmizer LT15 wide we can cut logs up to 36” in diameter and 16’ long. After being milled and air dried our dehumidification kiln can dry approximately 3,000 board feet at a time. Nothing goes to waste from any tree. Larger limbs are cut for firewood and the brush is chipped for mulch.
