We took a tour of the mill this past Wednesday, and it was quite an eye opening experience, it was an awesome place to go. We saw how the whole system works and how the transformation process works from a log to a board. This tour is open to everyone as long as you call ahead. It is not only a saw mill but a Pellet mill as well. In the tour we were shown how Pellets are made. The Mill is coming up with a plan to use the heat they burn from the wood as energy. We recommend this tour if you are stopping by Vanderhoof, but please be aware it will be at least an hour long tour. Hard hats, Safety vests and Safety glasses are required and they are supplied at the Mill.
