I’m in Kingsport, TN 36 miles North of Rogersville and I have a lot of walnut, both green and kiln dried. I don’t usually sell walnut because I use it to carve custom gunstocks. I can point you to a lot of other sawmills that do sell walnut. There is one in Rogersville that posts a lot of wood on E-Bay. The ban doesn’t apply to kiln dried wood or wood products. I mill my own trees and don’t move green lumber, so I’ve never looked into the ban issue. Here’s the webpage for Full Cycle: The owner and his wife will show you around and I’m sure you’ll find lots of interesting wood. And here’s their facebook page:

If you need more information on sawmills in the area as well as kiln drying in East Tennessee, just send me a PM and I’ll give you my phone #. There are a lot of small sawmills here. Too bad you aren’t looking for Cherry. I know a sawmill operator with a huge supply.

Check out this walnut log I sawed last spring. It’s almost ready to use:
