Saw Mills
Along the Front Range

 I work for the Jefferson Conservation District located in Lakewood.  We serve Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin counties.  I am trying to compile a list of all the sawmills in the Front Range or in our region, in order to better connect district landowners with these mills...

Here is a link to a survey of saw mills along the Front Range that looks like it was prepared in 1998 for just the kind of purpose that Katlin has in mind. Some of the outfits aren't listed in the Colorado Forest Products database yet. It is certainly dated but I googled the first three mills listed in table 2.1 and they are still operating. http://csfs..edu/cowood/library/01_Wood_Supplied_To_Pallet.pdf Wes
