Milling Capacity

Small Log Canter

The canter is a compact 4 headed chipping canter that feeds to a double arbor breakdown saw.

It utilizes hemlock and Douglas- fir logs with a minimum 5” top to a maximum 12” butt. All logs are run through an 18” ring de-barker prior to the mill. 

The canter produces 4x4, 4x6, 6x6 and 6x8 industrial timbers in 8, 10 and 12 foot lengths. 1” boards in 6 and 8 inch widths are generated when we do our 4x6 and 6x8 runs. These boards are excellent for fencing, pallet stock and roof strapping. 

By products from the milling processes go into wood chips and hog. 

The small log canter has a monthly production of 600,000 fbm and consumes 2400m3 of logs per month.

Large Log Band mill

Woodco operates two select 6” double cut band mills. These band mills are configured to cut larger timber from 13” top to maximum 38” butt in 14 to 24ft lengths.

The band mills can produce a variety of timber sizes from 8x8 to 20x20. Side lumber in 2 and 3 inch dimensions are run through our board edger to generate various widths and grades. 

All logs are debarked on a Rosser Head style de-barker and first cut slabs and edger waste are run through a slab chipper to manufacture pulp wood chips and hog material.  

The band mill’s have a monthly capacity of 400,000 fbm and consume 1600 m3 of logs per month.
