Sawmill Near Bogalusa, Hammond, Kentwood Area
I have a truckload of cypress trees that I am looking to make into dimensional lumber for around the house use.

Can anyone recommend a good sawmill that will work with everyday customers?

When you say truckload, are you talking about an F150 truckload?

Maybe try Jenkins Lumber between Franklinton and Folsom?

Stogner's cypress products is north of Bogalusa. I buy from him from time to time. Im almost certain he'll cut it for you.

There is a mill that does specialty lumber in Madisonville on HWY 22

I have a friend with a sawmill in Walker. We're just getting into the business. We could cut it for you for a small portion of the cypress.
Email me at mageea22@yahoo.com or text me at 225-505-3984 if you're interested.

There is a sawmill off of Bennett rd in Amite that will saw custom size logs I can’t remember the name but I’m sure google will help.

OP, here you go

LINK

That is to far for me to travel. If you were closer, I would saw for you.

Questions to ask the sawer.

Saw by hour or BF rate?

Stickers provided?

Do they need support equipment to move the logs?

Do they supply all labor or do you?

Biggest log they can saw?

Do you have a cut list? This is very important. Know what you want before you call anyone.

Know how to scale a log for BF?

This will help you get an idea on how to do that.

LINK

Do you have a place to have to saw at or you going to deliver the logs?

That is just a few questions to ask.
