Topic tags/keywords: maple lumber milling

I recently convinced my neighbor to let me have the wood from a seventy foot tall maple tree that he had taken down. The tree guy agreed to cut it into 4 to -6 foot sections and left it in my neighbor’s yard for me. My nephews, brother in law and I got it into my yard, but now I need to get it cut into slabs so that I can sticker it. Some of the sections are 3 to 3&1/2 feet in diameter and 6 feet long. I’d guess that these weigh around 1,000 pounds max. Most are a lot smaller. I’m in the NW suburbs of Phila., PA. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know.

Give Woodmizer a call and ask them if they have any customers that do custom cutting in the Philadelphia area.

I’ve talked to them before and they are willing to give that information.

Them talk to the cutter and see what they have to offer. Saw size etc.
