Hey guys can any of you inform me of any local sawmills located in Eastern NC near Greenville. I was told of a guy in Washington at one time but cannot for the life of me locate that number or address at this time.

Thanks what I really need are several near the Greenville area within 30 minutes- 1 hour driving time and their phone numbers.

Thanks a great deal, Chris

Thanks a bunch. I called myself looking around on the site here attempting to locate that sawmill directory because I was needing it about a year ago and I simply couldn't find it.

Thanks guys,Chris

Chris, I bought some walnut from Kevin a year or so ago. Reasonable prices from a nice guy. He has a lot of differentg kinds of wood. I'm going to buy some cherry from him the next time I'm down that way. My MIL has a place on the Pamlico ad we get down there on occasion. Good luck.

Another vote for Calico Custom Lumber and Jim Baker. His inventory changes depending on what he has cut recently. Nice guy to deal with and fair prices.
