JUNE 10TH – 6:30 PM, MARTIN LEHMAN'S SAWMILL OPERATION IN CARLISLE.
The sawmill operation tour will highlight what is required to processes raw timber into dimensional lumber for shipping and eventual sale. Come and see what happens to the logs that are harvested from your woodlot and gain a better understanding of what is required to make the quality lumber we use.
Directions: If you are planning to attend, meet at 6:30 PM at the rear of the Cumberland County Extension Office to carpool to the sawmill which is approximately 5 minutes away. Parking is limited at the sawmill. The extension office is located at 310 Allen Road in Carlisle, PA 17013. Directions and a map to the extension office are available on-line at: http://cumberland.extension.psu.edu/directions.html. Late comers: From the intersection of Allen Road and Rt. 11 near the extension office, go south on Rt. 11 for approximately 1 mile and turn left on Shagbark Lane. The Lehman farm is right next to I-81 on the left (if you go under I-81 you went too far). Pull in the farm lane, go past the house & barn back to the log piles and you are there!
