Fruitful Tree

Custom Wood Milling and Hand Crafted Woodworks

Wood milling

Wood Milling. We started our wood mill in order to provide the community with a more sustainable option for small scale lumber. We harvest local forest and urban trees that are standing dead or already down, and also work with Arborists to salvage the trees they are contracted to remove.  By turning dead trees into usable lumber, we offer a way for others to participate in utilizing one of our local valuable resources.  We mill what we harvest and salvage into rough sawn lumber for lumber for building projects, such as siding, fencing, mantels, shelving, trim work, cabinetry, furniture, and many other uses.  Pricing on our lumber varies depending on the species of wood and dimensions, so please contact us to get a free estimate for a custom order or for more information!

In addition, if you have trees or logs on your property that need to be removed, we provide an alternative choice to just disposing of them.  We can create custom lumber out of the logs you provide or we can bring the mill to you and create custom sized lumber on site.  We can help you determine the best lumber you can get from your logs or we take custom orders that you specify.

We have milled many different species of wood including: Red Heart Cedar, Siberian Elm, White Fir, Black Walnut, Mahogany, Salt Cedar, Aspen, Doug Fir, Ponderosa Pine, Pinon, Cottonwood, White Poplar, Black Locust, Honey Locust, Apple, Cherry, Red Plum, Peach, Blue Spruce, Angle man Spruce, Scotch Pine and Boxelder.

Several factors influence our milling rate so it is best to contact us so we can answer your specific needs. Typically, we charge around $55 per hour.

Handmade Woodworks. We design and craft unique items from the local wood we have harvested and milled ourselves. The species, natural grains, colors, and the unique history behind the wood helps to determine the design of each item. Please feel free to visit our website www.ourfruitfultree for more photographs of items we have made, including small furniture, cutting boards, candlestick holders, napkin holders, hand carved roses, and much more. We also take custom orders if you have something in mind that you would like created!

We aim to practice a sustainable lifestyle at home and in our work, and we hope to inspire others to do the same.  In addition to using salvaged wood for our projects, we have chosen to live off grid and on water catchment. Our woodshop is even run with solar electricity. Every bit of waste from our milling is used either for smaller projects, as firewood to heat our home, sawdust for our chickens and goats, or sold to others.
