I live in Fortville Indiana and have cut many tall timbers while making a clearing for my new home. I am looking for someone local to cut these timbers onsite. Can anyone offer some assistance on finding a person with a portable sawmill?

Call Woodmizer in Indianapolis and they will give you a list of mills in your area.

Go here for one possible source for leads.

You can also go to Craigslist and seach on portable sawmill service in the “Services” section.

Do what Dallas and Perry said. I’ve done it three times and found a sawyer only 10 miles from me. I have to get the logs there, but it’s worth it since his saw can cut a 35-in diameter. Most portables are limited to 28 inches.

I live 20 miles SW of the Indy airport and there are several sawyers in the area. Call Wood Mizer and they’ll give you phone numbers.

Your state forestry office may also list sawyers. There were people listed on mine that didn’t have Woodmizers. I looked there because none of the woodmizers listed were close to me.

Norwood sawmills might also help you find a portable sawmill. I wish I lived closer! Tim, thanks for the tip about I’ll have to get listed with them.
