Wood Saw Mill services

On-site milling
With Mobile Milling we bring our Portable Saw Mill to you and mill the log where it lies. This avoids maneuvering large logs out of tight spaces, tearing up lawns with heavy equipment and resizing logs to make them smaller and more manageable.

  • Once a tree has been cut down, we assemble the mill around the log and mill to your custom dimensions
  • We leave the lumber on-site with you once we are done.
  • We also offer options for kiln drying. Head to our Drying & Curing page for more information.
  • Logs greater than 32″ diameter may need to be trimmed to fit the mill.
  • $120/hr on the job

Drop off Milling
Bring us your logs, stumps, or other tree pieces to be milled to your specifications.

  • Drop off your log and custom dimensions and we get everything milled.
  • Pick up the lumber once completed or leave the slabs with us for Air and/or Kiln drying.
  • $100/hr of mill time

Types of Wood Milling

We can cut all types of wood to varying shapes and sizes.

  • Chainsaw milling – our custom designed power feed chainsaw mill cuts beautiful, flat slabs, beams, and lumber. This type of milling can cut up to 32″ diameter logs
  • Band-saw milling – The 14″ upright band-saw has a custom designed powered feed table. This allows us to cut dimensional lumber, beams, and mantels.
  • Free Hand Cutting – For pieces larger that 32″ we use a chainsaw and guides to cut Cross-sections (wood rounds) as well as bucking and sizing large wood pieces. This method is typically used on wide stumps, irregular root zones and burls.

What to Expect

Before we begin milling, customer must sign an agreement to accept the lumber as-is after milling, understanding that the wood will change and move as it dries.
We do our best to estimate the amount of time required to mill each log before cutting however foreign objects in the tree and repositioning the log can change the actual time.

Challenges

Urban Milling has many challenges. Some of the challenges we encounter often are listed below.

    • Backyards and other tight spaces make it difficult to maneuver and extract large logs.

 

  • After milling has begun, we can find metal and foreign objects buried in the wood. This can damage saw blades and even render the log unusable.

     

  • Species selection/supply – We only harvest trees that has already been removed by local tree care companies so our supply is limited to species native to DFW.
