I don't know about price, but is Youngblood Lumber (used to be around Broadway and Central) still around? There are lots of small sawmills over here in western Wisconsin. Schmitt Timber in Spring Valley, Wisconsin comes to mind. 715-778-5533.

Alas, Lake Elmo's hardwood store has closed. It was my favorite by far. Youngblood's is still here.

There is a sawmill in Courtland, between Mankato and New Ulm that will sell to individuals. They have a lot of local hard woods. I buy most of my wood there. Either rough or finished. Cherry, Oak, Walnut, Birch, aspen, and others. Is that "in the neighborhood"?

Is that Minnesota Valley Forest Products Mill?
It's a bit of a drive, but it might be worth checking out.

I worked for Minnesota valley forest products for many years. Talked with a guy from Mankato a while back that purchased some wood there, he said it was supposed to be kiln dried but was no way close to dry. on the burl issue I beg to differ also that is one big ash burl. thanks for stopp'in in. I do have some walnut, basswood, birch, maple,black ash green ash red elm, grey elm, white oak, red oak hackberry, red pine, white pine, just not much cherry in stock. ross

In addition to trying to co-ordinate cutting crews trucking dealing with land owners etc. I could run any peice of equipment he had inculding the mill, just to fill a void needed. was there from 77 to 86. was fun but didn't leave much life on call or duty 24-7. ross

Funny~My husband used to buy about 2 million ft a year for Frank and Mary. We kept 5 crews going full time. Finally twisted in about 94. Jim said his "education" cost a fortune. But, there was always a good meal involved on scale day. Frank loves to eat! Jana

not that it had anything to do with me leaving but it seemed like things started going down hill after the time I left, I guess I did see the writing on the wall. It was to bad, although sometimes very hard, had many good years there. ross
