Western Washington Small-Scale Sawmills  

The following is a partial list of small-scale sawmill operations in Western Washington. This database is intended to benefit those family forest owners that do not harvest the quantity of wood necessary to access Washington's traditional forestry infrastructure, and are looking for sawmills who will accept small quantities of logs. The list should also assist forest owners who wish to utilize timber from their own property, homeowners who would like to find a creative use for a backyard hazard tree, or woodcrafters looking for a local source of custom milled wood.

No endorsement is implied nor intended for any business listed here, nor is exclusion from this list intended to be a negative endorsement. The directory is simply a listing of sawmill operators who responded to a phone call and agreed to be listed. The list is arranged geographically from north to south (approximately). The details following each listing's contact information include whether the mill is mobile (portable), its capacity, and other services provided by the sawyer.

If you are a sawmill operator and would like to be included in this list, please contact Andy Perleberg at (509) 667-6540 or andyp@wsu.edu.
