Along with growing hay and timber, we operate a sawmill and kiln drying business that
specializes in milling oversize and over-length logs. We also custom mill and dry customer
owned logs into lumber suitable for furniture, flooring, trim, etc.
We mill logs up to 6 in diameter and 58 long with one of our three
sawmills. We kiln dry lengths up to 43 in one of our Nyle, Woodmizer or solar dry
Some of WPFs specialties include:
We are one of the few mills that treecycle, which is the process of transforming oversize logs that would otherwise be sent to a landfill into beautiful boards, planks and slabs whose beauty will continue to enrich lives in a new form.We frequently assist customers building a house or LEEDS certified commercial building located in NC, SC or VA. These clients would like to turn the trees that grew on the site into kiln, solar or air dried lumber to use in the finished home or building. Our extensive client and treecycling list includes
If you would like to have your logs turned into lumber, or would like to support treecycling by purchasing some of our slabs or lumber, please give us a call to discuss how we can assist you with your needs.

It took two excavators, one on each end, to lift what was left of the grand willow oak that once shaded part of Dukes East Campus. The tree had been cut down to a massive, 35,000-pound log, with the stumps of former limbs jutting out like the Venus de Milos missing arms.
