Finding a Local Sawmill and Dry Kiln

NCSU Wood Products Extension is frequently asked if we know of a local sawmill, or a nearby custom dry kiln. The best source of information that we use comes from the website Small sawmills and dry kiln businesses can self-list their products and services for free at that web site

My colleague Harry Watt has compiled those North Carolina sawmills and dry kilns that were listed in mid-September 2015 by county. That list is posted here for your convenience in an effort to locate landowners and other local businesses and individuals that can process logs and green lumber into kiln dried lumber. Please understand that the list will be evolving over time as new businesses are added and others are dropped, and the reader is encouraged to visit to get the most up-to-date listing. We encourage sawmills and kiln drying operations to add themselves to the list if they are not already listed by registering at
