We Now Do Selective Cutting & Clearing!

For the past three years, we’ve been missing something. We’ve been able to turn your logs into lumber as long as you had a tree guy put it on the ground for us. This week, that changed. We’re excited to announce we now have the equipment and expertise to cut your trees or clear your standing timber acreage! We’ve also upgrade so EVERY part of your tree gets recycled. Our chipper churns your branches into mulch, our saw mill saws the trunks into lumber and our woodworker turns that lumber into an heirloom piece of furniture to hand down for generations. This makes Mill on Wheels a complete woods to goods business! Not only are we your one stop shop for treecycling, but now we give you even more bang for your buck. Have a tree that needs taken down? Want land cleared for a pasture?

Uses for Your Lumber

Using a Saw Mill vs Buying From a Retailer If you’re thinking about calling us, you probably already have a project in mind for that downed tree. But in case you don’t, let’s go over the benefits of having our mill cut your tree. Besides the obvious – you can’t buy quality 18′ long beams at Lowe’s or Home Depot, there’s other differences. Not only do the big stores limit the species you can buy (try finding spalted maple at Lowe’s!), but you don’t even get what you pay for. For instance, a 2 x 4 really measures 1.5 x 3.5! That’s because the rough cut lumber is measured before drying. Mill on Wheels offers true dimensional lumber, either from our inventory or cut from your log. Longer, shorter, thicker, quarter sawn and bookmatched – no matter what your taste, we give you a higher quality lumber at a reasonable price. Not to mention, if you have a soft spot for that tree because you, your kids and your grand kids all climbed it, wouldn’t it look better as a harvest style farmhouse table in your dining room than a piece of firewood in your fireplace? So What Can I Do with All This Lumber? Here are just a few things you can use your wood for: Decks Framing Beams Shingles Cedar Shakes Siding Landscape Timbers Barn Timbers Cross Ties Fencing Posts Furniture You can also sell your wood to recoup the money spent to have it cut. We have people call us for white oak, pine and other species all the time. If we have a buyer, we’ll give... read more

Columbus Farm Festival

One of the best things about fall is the festivals. This year, we’ll have the saw mill at one of our favorites – the Columbus Farm Festival. You can watch us saw trees into lumber then visit our tent to buy items made from treecycled wood. We especially love this festival because it showcases all the great things that make our little neck of the woods special (pardon the pun). In addition to the farmers, crafters and food vendors, there will be pony rides, a clown, balloon animals and tons of other down-home activities. So load up the kids and head out the Columbus Farm Festival this Saturday from 9 am – 2 pm in downtown Columbus, NC.  Support local farmers and small businesses while watching your kids have a blast!... read more

Blueridge BBQ Artists Treecycle

There are two artists at the BBQ festival this weekend that only use recycled trees. Both make beautiful, eco-friendly wood products. First, there’s Mr. John Orlando of Anvil Board Company. Mill on Wheels custom saws all the maple, ash and walnut he uses for his gourmet cutting boards. These trees were given to us by generous locals who knew someone would put them to good use. John has built his business on your treecyled materials. The second woodworker who prides himself on only using “dead or downed” trees is Don Mobley of Botes & Stuff. He creates gorgeous canoe display cases, wood trivets and  colorful boxes. Don sources is trees from his own property, neighbors and eco-conservative friends. I’d like elaborate on the vital role landowner’s play in these two businesses. People assume since they give us their downed tree for free,  when we sell that wood, we’re making out like bandits. This isn’t true. We still have to pay the fuel, vehicle wear, employee time and other costs involved to retrieve the tree. We also save the landowner as much or not more money on tree removal than we would have paid for the wood.  However, the retrieval costs are usually low enough to allow us to sell people like John and Don materials at a reasonable price. This, in turn, lowers the price you (the consumer) has to pay for their products. This allows them to sell more, keeping more American jobs secure and more small businesses thriving. I’d like to say thank you to the folks who believed the power of ONE and called us instead... read more

Treecycle and Put Money in Your Pocket

Each year, millions of fallen trees are hauled off to landfills and tossed away as trash. TreeCycling is the process of recovering these downed trees and recycling them into finished wood products. When homeowners TreeCycle a fallen tree, they save money on the cost of tree removal. How We Put Money in Your Pocket We don’t cut down trees. That should be left to a qualified tree service provider.  However, once it’s on the ground, if your tree is a good candidate, we can cut it into lumber that you can sell. Or if you have a project around the home, you won’t have to spend money on lumber at a home improvement store.  In addition to providing you usable lumber, we also save you money on tree removal. By cutting it into longer lengths for lumber, the tree service uses less labor, less equipment, has no landfill fee and in turn, charges YOU less! Create Jobs, Not Trash By TreeCycling, rather than creating trash, you create: American jobs Lower taxes from maintaining/creating landfills Less harvesting of our natural forests Materials for high-quality products Free firewood for needy families (contact us for more information) The next time you have a tree that has fallen or is going to be taken down, call Mill on Wheels. We’ll come to your site and evaluate your tree, at no cost to you. If you do have a viable tree, we’ll provide you options and specific... read more
