Sustainable log sourcing
We partner with arborists and landowners to source logs that would otherwise end up as mulch. In most cases the trees are already dead or are removed due to safety concerns or disease. These partnerships reduces wood waste and costs for all parties.
In some cases we buy large, high-quality logs from local landowners for our sawmill to repurpose into lumber. To learn more about our log purchasing program please click the link below.
Lively Lumber is a proud member of the Urban Wood Network®.
Russ Jacobson, owner of Global Wood Source
Ryan has milled tens of thousands of board feet for Global Wood Source. We have a Wood-Mizer sawmill but parter with Lively Lumber to mill our oversized logs, which adds value to our bottom line. He is a top-notch sawyer who really knows his stuff, and it is a pleasure to work with him!
Loved working with Ryan. He came and milled a large mulberry log into slabs on my property. He was really helpful explaining the whole process in advance as well as telling me how to store and dry the slabs and how to work with them once they’re ready. Highly recommended.
Had a great experience working with Ryan at Lively Lumber. He supplied very high quality Redwood slabs that I used to build a 10 foot long live-edge table. Ryan was great to work with; he was responsive, accommodating, and very friendly.
