Kieth, There a few guys in your area milling mesquite. Can't recall any names right now. Check woodweb.com, go to thier log buying forum and search for mesquite. You should be able to get some names that way. Give you a chance to see a mill in action. LeeB

Sometimes those other sites incidentally get some forestry/logging information on them but I've not found it to be too plentiful and have not found anyone but Forestry Forum (us) and Timber Buyer, www.timberbuyer.net , to have dedicated catagories on these subjects.  About.com supplies some good info on occasion but they've been a little slow lately, I understand.

Sounds like there is some good information exchange going on now, nere,  and it's hard to beat ''talking to a local Forester" to get information about buying and selling logs in a geographical area.

Tom: I hope you didn't think I was trying to lead anyone away or detract from this forum. Was just trying to give Kieth a way to see some mils in his area. I for one very much enjoy this forum and have no intent on leaving. I don't post often, but then I don't talk much either. Not really a social person. LeeB

Not just brochures. I have found a few nice government publications that are kinda useful too.  It seems there is no end to the people who make sawing, logging, and harvesting equipment but there is absolutely no concensus of what equipment is most important on a limited budget.
