Furthermore, we offer custom drying and resawing services.
Upon request, we can grade lumber according to building inspection requirements.
Most of our work is with Douglas Fir
and Western Red Cedar

, as well as Western White Pine
. Our Hardwoods include Alder

We are always happy to mill your own logs for you. This can vary from a piece of your old fruit tree brought in your car trunk, up to multiple logging-truckloads.
You should contact the BC Ministry of Forests before transporting logs, however. Check our Links
page for their website as well as the guidelines and application form for a timbermark, which serves as a transport permit. Their service is free but can take a week or two.
Our guarantee: All wood cut is guaranteed to be of the specified grade or better at the time of cutting (and kiln drying if applicable). Blacktail Enterprises and Rain Forest Sawmill take no responsibility for subsequent downgrade due to storage, drying, customer handling, etc.
