Does anyone know of any mills around east TN that buys cedar logs for either lumber or chipping? If so, what diameter & length do they purchase, and what is the pay scale?

There is a fellow in Rutledge, TN that saws cedar. He is ENE of Knoxville. He's not a large operation but does a good job.

I bought some 5/4 from him about two years ago and my brother bought some about a month ago.

Email me if you want contact info.

Just wondering what kind of rep they have. Never heard of them before I stumbled across their web site. Tried to send a message but there was a problem with their message site. Wouldn't let me send. The date that I saw I believe was 2004, didn't know if they were still in business, and if so, what their prices were and what types they bought. (Lumber logs only or if they also bought chipper wood)

Mark runs a pretty big operation.  They buy a lot of logs and use a circle mill to square cants which they sell mostly to China and some other companies.  They also do some resawing.  All of their waste is ground into mulch similar to what we do.  They also do a lot of logging.
He competes hard.
