Our goal is to become the most organized, efficient, respected specialty sawmill in Montana by consistently manufacturing top quality products by employees knowledgeable in all aspects of business, thereby becoming Montana’s destination lumberyard where our customers know they can come to have their lumber needs met.

Log to Lumber

In this video, watch as logs are bucked, debarked, and fed into the sawmill, where they get turned into our specialty lumber products. Every product we manufacture, including our flooring and siding, begins with these steps. We choose the best possible logs for the material you need and are in constant communication about what needs to be done to ensure you are receiving top-quality lumber. Here's an inside look at what this process looks like, from log to lumber and every step in-between.
