These logs were taken from the logjam near RUBY's FISH CAMP on the Perdido River at the border of Florida and Alabama.  The grain, color and live edge are ideal for "natural" ambiance.

Working logs in the River



It takes skill and determination to get at the logjams on the rivers. Here, LD Henderson removes a root stump from the end so the log can be brought downriver to a take-out point.

A FANTASTIC LOGJAM on the Perdido

As we work on the Perdido River we are finding more logjams than we originally explored. This one is about a mile below I-10  - some miles above the Highway 90 river crossing.  Imagine the Juniper Lumber that will come out of this big jam ! We are starting to address this one but the immediate project is to clear the RR Bridge at Barienau Park.

JUNIPER LUMBER and BATS ... BATS?

Cut to your specifications - JUNIPER
River Resources now has that beautiful timber available in lumber. The saws are working. The lumber is being cut for a variety of uses. Here are some things to know about JUNIPER wood. This is Atlantic White Cedar - a relative to Eastern Red Cedar and the famous California Redwoods. The cell structure of this wood is "closed" so it resists water and rot.  Logs that have been in the water for years remain DRY except the very outer bark.  Because it is closed cell, by nature it is much lighter than the heavier OAK or CYPRUS wood.  So it makes superb strong and lightweight construction material - including decorative uses. ASK about the LIVE EDGE option. We can cut to YOUR SPECIFICATIONS.  Give us a call.
