Environmentally conscious wood harvesting

At Fontaine Sawmill, located in East Montpelier, we are a family owned lumber yard with locally harvested logs that are milled into specialty timbers for all your building needs. 

Environmentally conscious consumers appreciate that every part of the tree is utilized. Once the trees are cut and transported to the mill, the logs are debarked before the milling process. The bark is then ground into red hemlock mulch in our new mulch grinding machine. 

Lumber and beams are milled and can be customized to sizes that fit your building projects. The raw edges are fed through a wood chipper with the chips shipped off to be used for power. Planing lumber creates wood shavings and saw dust is created during the milling process.  Local farmers use these materials as bedding. 

It's a refreshing feeling to know that beginning with the sustainably harvested trees in the forest, to the lumber created for your building projects, no waste is generated at the family owned Fontaine Sawmill.
