At Utah Tree Co., we help clients with tree removal in Provo, stump removal in Orem, and other tree services across the surrounding towns and counties. With all that tree removal work, we pick up a lot of quality wood materials. Instead of just discarding them, we try to recycle and reuse them as best we can. One of the ways we “upcycle” discarded trees is to mill those logs into slabs and offer them to the community at competitive prices.
What is Log Milling?
You may have seen old pictures of sawmills or more modern videos of lumber mills. Milling is when you take a tree trunk and put it through a mill. The mill cuts the tree into boards and slabs at specific measurements. You can then turn around and use those boards and slabs in a wide variety of applications. At Utah Tree Co., we focus on creating slabs out of the trees we harvest.
What Kind of Lumber Do You Offer?
We are first and foremost a tree services company – not a sawmill – so the products we offer will vary. It all depends on what we have come across in our tree removal work. We decided to offer slabs because we found our clients and customers enjoyed those the most. You can take these slabs and make tables, shelves, and other types of furniture.
What Kind of Trees are Good For Milling?
While some trees tend to grow better in Utah than others, there are actually a wide variety of trees found throughout our service area. That means you might have any number of trees that could be good for milling in your yard. Popular trees for milling include:
- White Oak
- Red Oak
- Sugar Maple
How Do I Know if I Should Mill My Tree?
You don’t have to figure this all out on your own. Our Utah tree specialists know trees and we know which specimens are more likely to be good for milling than others. If you have a tree that you are hoping you can mill into a tabletop or other piece of wood, just contact us. One of our team members will be happy to answer your questions about trees. We only need to quickly look over the tree to determine if it is a good candidate for milling.
Are You Interested in Purchasing Milled Tree Products?

That means we price our mill products competitively. You can probably get a great deal if you contact us.
