Rough Cut Lumber Available at MTE

Rough Sawn Lumber from the Menominee ForestRough Cut Lumber Drying

MTE Wood is a leading supplier of Wisconsin-grown rough sawn lumber, selling full-dimensional lumber to wood flooring manufacturers, lumber yards, wood processors, home builders, contractors, furniture builders, cabinetmakers and more.

Rough sawn lumber is cut from timber into planks of specific sizes, but is not planed and has only been air dried. As a result, rough sawn lumber contains more moisture than kiln dried wood. The further wood is dried out the more it shrinks – a 2 x 4 placed in a kiln often ends up closer to a 1.5 x 3.5. The extra moisture in rough sawn lumber keeps it closer to its original cut size, and can be difficult to acquire from lumber warehouses and big box stores.

Leave a Smaller Carbon Footprint with Sustainable Rough Sawn Lumber

MTE adheres to traditional harvesting methods employed by the Menominee Tribe of Wisconsin and outlined by Chief Oshkosh of the Menominee Nation. This method includes harvesting only full grown trees, and trees which are fallen or sick – a forestry philosophy performed to keep the Menominee Forest healthy and bountiful. MTE’s forest management team has used sustainable forest management practices for over 150 years, setting a standard for the timber industry.

Rough sawn lumber dries naturally in air drying stacks, without consuming fuel used in drying kilns. MTE cuts wood from the Menominee Forest, then transports it nearby to our Neopit Sawmill, located within the forest. This minimizes the transport process, and lowers carbon usage associated with shipping wood.
