My New Hud-Son H360 Hydraulic Portable Sawmill

Recycling felled trees into valuable, usable lumber is always a big priority here at my Bedford, New York farm.

Over the years, I've planted thousands and thousands of trees. Unfortunately, I've also lost many trees - they've fallen during storms, or had to be cut down because of damage or disease. I always save the logs and have them milled into usable boards. Some time ago, I decided to gift myself with a portable sawmill, so I could cut the lumber right here at the farm when needed. Last week, my property manager, Doug White, and Pete Sherpa from my crew, got a lesson on how to use it - our new Hud-Son H360 Hydraulic Portable Sawmill.

Enjoy these photos.

And here is a short video showing the sawmill in action.
