Red Cedar

A source of red cedar is now making it's way into lumber.  Fresh cut, the red is almost lavender but dries quickly to a beautiful red/brown that people like.

Cedars on the lot

About five of these loads of Cedars are arriving on the lot. Most of the expected lumber is already committed.  More river logjam juniper is expected in a week. The sawmill will be humming.

Working into the SPRING with ALL SYSTEMS GO

River Resources weathered out the chilling freeze of January with mill repairs and some cold weather down-time. 
Meanwhile, all systems are scheduled to be on GO by the end of January and and full slate of work is ahead.

We will be on the river at Perdido and harvesting some live cedar across the panhandle.  Much of the expected lumber is already earmarked for some key markets but there will always be opportunities for small jobs when windows are open.

Some interesting developing markets for us are the parts of the log that many would pass over. The stumps are at item for landscape markets. The tree tops with many limbs find manufacturers of rustic coat racks and "cat trees" among other things.  Taxidermists use weathered wood for display pieces. Indoor plant decorators use rustic wood for texture in office and retail settings. Even the scraps from cutting can be chipped for horse stalls.  We hope to use "everything but the blue sky between the limbs".

LIVE EDGE fireplace mantels are in demand for upscale homes.  Our stock of "river logs" is a great source for weathered - live edge cuts.  We are amazed at the beauty of timber from the magnificent Juniper wild-fall in our area.

Red Cedar Contracted

These cedars were contracted for removal. The landowner wanted to remove the trees from the fence-line since they shade off about 5 acres total of a 86 acre field.  He wants the tree stumps to remain about fence top high as a deterrent to off road activity into the fields.It is a February project

The mill is running well. We have taken in some jobs for customer supplied timber as well as material we take in from our river logjam supplies.  RIVERLOGGERS.COM

Call our main number and leave a message about your particular needs - if it is to saw up your own timber or to purchase lumber we saw up. 

Juniper is our primary source timber from logjams on the rivers.  Often no kiln drying is needed with Juniper because of the closed cell struture of the species. It is normal to be under 12pct moisture with only a day or two in the air. (Atlantic White Cedar)

We do have occasional supplies of other species.

We will post here when there are significant offerings.  SECURITY CAMERAS are hidden on the site.  Trespassers will be prosecuted.
