Black Locust — Nature's Answer to Pressure Treated

-Robinia pseudoacacia-


Milled Lumber
A Black Locust Connection.

Blue Sky uses band saw milling to create beams, boards and planks of various sizes, depending upon the needs of customers.

 

Logs are squared to maximize their particular shape.

Layers are taken down to the heart of the useful wood.

Eventually, boards are laid out in various sizes.

Procurement
of Black Locust Timber

Blue Sky uses a 1972 Franklin Forwarder-Skidder and a 1960s Finnish Radio-Tir winch, to bring the timber in from the wilds. This Low-Impact approach to forestry protects the woodlot for future generations.
