 Portable Sawmill Coming to Black Forest

The recently awarded Department of Natural Resources (DNR) grant to Black Forest Together includes a provision that calls for the location of a portable sawmill in the Black Forest.  The Forest Service is facilitating the relocation of the sawmill from Golden West Pine Mill, LLC which will be in place by the end of next week or earlier. In the first phase of this operation, the operator of the mill will pick up logs from residents’ homes.  The minimum size of the logs are six inches in diameter and 8 feet 6 inches in length.  The operator of the mill is Andy Hinz (970-590-8351;  If you desire to have your logs picked up please provide your contact name, address and phone number to the Resource Center  (719-495-2445;  The sawmill operator will contact the property owner to arrange for access to the property and time for pickup. Black Forest Together has no contractual arrangements or agreements with Golden West Pine Mills and we are merely facilitating the introduction of this mill until the mill is up and running.
