Nelson sawmill was opened in 2004 as a way to utilize the valuable hardwoods & softwoods being wasted by local municipalities,tree services,construction companies and landowners. I am an urban logger and do what I can to keep logs from going to the landfill/being burned/put in a tub grinder by sawing them into a usable wood product be they raw materials or finished products from my wood shop.
Part of a load of walnut that was piled up on a bridge construction job to be BURNED. There was more, I saved them the trouble of burning it, I hauled it all home.

  After some chainsaw work it was not too big for my little manual mill.

  I managed to get a few small live edge slabs off the redbud log.

  A walnut stump on the mill for gun stock material.

  I also milled some book matches from the same ugly little log.

Do you have any of the walnut or curly maple left? I would need enough to build my daugher a large blanket chest and a highboy for my wife.
Thank you, Bill Gernert

My guess for the unusual wood is boxelder. Also I have standing a pear that is approx 24" dia by 12' nice no limbs for about 10', must come down. Is it worth anything?
