I have been a frustrated logger for some time. I have tried to buy a used sawmill 3 times only to have the deal crash and burn.
Today I was looking over some elm logs I had sawed by a local miller and and voiced my frustration in the mill department. I have a woods full of dying ash trees and hate to turn them into firewood. I also will be felling a bunch of walnut and cherry trees soon and was dreading the cost of getting them sawed.
This local miller piped up that he was buried in work and that if i would saw his logs with his mill then I can saw my logs with his mill. Strictly a barter basis. He runs a flooring business sawing reclaimed barn beams as well as regular logs.
I feel like I fell off the bus and landed in a flower patch.
