Cassens Trees produces small quantities of hardwood lumber using a Woodmizer LT40 hydraulic portable band sawmill.
Many of the trees are obtained from forest management activities conducted on our own timber lands or from salvage.
To maintain quality, lumber is carefully handled, air dried, and finally kiln dried
to 6-8% moisture content. Specific information on lumber drying is
available in the Dry Kiln Operator's Manual, USDA Agriculture Handbook No.
188. The manual is available for $30 from the Forest Products Society
at 608-231-1361, extension 212.
As a small, part-time producer, Cassens Trees is able to supply small quantities (50 to 500 board feet) of lumber at competitive prices. We are willing
to sort for quality, widths, lengths and other factors often important to small users. We stock a limited quantity of 4/4 and 8/4 stock to 18 inches
wide. Upon request we can also produce book match boards and other highly decorative products. Custom sawing services are available.
To locate suppliers of semi-load quantities of hardwood lumber, contact the Indiana Hardwood Lumberman's Association
(IHLA) at http://www.ihla.org.
For purchase information, please email your requests to email@example.com.
Let us know species, quality level, widths, lengths, thickness and any other useful information. Knowing what the
lumber will be used for helps us to determine the quality level needed. Purchasers will be responsible for any shipping
charges. For specific questions please complete the Lumber Information
