Hey guys,
I’m not sure how many of you Lumberjocks live in East Texas so most of ya’ll probably wont have an answer for me! haha But the only place locally that I was able to buy good hardwood lumber has shut down (located in Mt. Enterprise) and I don’t know of any other good places to buy from close to here. I would hate to have to drive to either Houston or Dallas in order to just buy lumber. Being located in Nacogdoches (right in the middle of East Texas), that is a 2.5 – 3 hour drive one way and is inconvenient for me. I figure there would be some around Tyler or Longview but haven’t found any. Any of ya’ll had any luck?

Thanks,
Eric

You can try M&G Sawmill in Huntsville, Tx. Sorry I can’t find anything closer.

I actually saw them a little while ago and forgot about them! Thanks for the reminder :) I checked that wood finder website and that sawmill IS the closest to me. However, the place I used to buy from wasn’t listed on the site so I’m hoping there’s some other unlisted ones out there..There HAS to be because the only thing out here is trees and forests! haha

There’s always Google Maps . Lots of hits there; presumably some of them will be helpful!

I’m trying to recall, but I think there is a guy who routinely posts on Craigslist around the Kaufman area, which might not be too bad for you. I actually have family in the Athens/Gun Barrel City area, but haven’t really had a chance to take advantage of that yet.

Still, it’s worth checking Craigslist, if you don’t already.

Yes. Look on Craigslist. A lot of Sawyers like myself advertise on Craigslist.
