Sawmill Lumber for Sale
MTE Wood is a leading supplier of Wisconsin-grown rough sawn lumber. We sell full-dimensional sawmill lumber to wood flooring manufacturers, lumber yards, wood processors, home builders, contractors, furniture builders, cabinet makers and several other industries.
Rough sawn lumber is cut from timber into planks of specific sizes, but is not planed—only air-dried. As a result, rough sawn lumber contains more moisture than kiln-dried wood. The more the wood is dried, 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.
MTE Wood sells sawmill lumber in a variety of sizes and species – Contact us to learn more and buy rough cut lumber today!
Leave a Smaller Carbon Footprint with Sustainable, Rough Sawn Lumber
MTE uses traditional wood harvesting methods outlined by Chief Oshkosh of the Menominee Nation. This method includes harvesting only fallen, sick and full-grown trees — a forestry philosophy which lets us 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 itself. This minimizes the transport process and lowers carbon usage associated with shipping wood.
