I’m midway between SF and Sacramento, so most of my sources are focused in this area.

There are some great hardwood yards in Sacramento. I use Hughes, but you also have Aura (also in Modesto and San Jose), Higgins, Rocklin Forest Products, CA Hardwood Producers in Auburn, Burls & More ( in Meridian, etc. I go to Berkeley for MacBeath ( they are also in SF). There is PALS in Oakland and others located through San Jose and south, but I don’t go that far for lumber. In the north bay, you have Mount Strom in Windsor. The Woodsman ( in Stockton.

I have not used the following sawyers yet, but have saved their names for future use:

Frank Sieferman in Zamora, cel 530-383-5464. The Craigslist ad said he had walnut, sycamore, elm, locust, oak, she oak, redwood slabs and lumber.

Walnut near Davis –

Ron Trout in Twain Harte –

If you search the Urban Forrest Ecosystems Institute site (below) for portable sawmills, you should get a few more names.

Good luck and happy building,
