In need of a local sawmill in Illinois to convert your removed urban tree into value-added lumber? Then look no further than the Illinois Directory of Custom Sawmills and Woodworkers.

The directory, produced by Jay Hayek of Extension Forestry at the University of Illinois, provides a map-based directory of more than 80 custom sawmill operators and turn-key woodworkers. 

The interactive directory includes the services of each operations, plus address and contact information. It’s a big improvement over the former PDF-based directory of custom sawmills in the Land of Lincoln.

The website notes, “This directory is a work in progress and is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all custom sawmills and woodworkers in the state of Illinois.”

If your custom sawmill operation is not included, contact jhayek@illinois.edu.
