"In Business Since 1953"


Our Mill and Yard

   Our sawmill is a traditional circular sawmill which has been in operation since 1953, when it was founded by Wayford Frerichs. We have an experienced crew that is always willing to help you. We mill only slow growth white pine which has the highest R-Rating of any species of wood in the southeast U.S.

 All of our logs are cured for two years.
