This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in one or more of the following manufacturing activities:

  1. sawing dimension lumber, boards, beams, timber, poles, ties, shingles, shakes, siding, and wood chips from logs or bolts;
  2. sawing round wood poles, pilings, and posts and treating them with preservatives; and

Sawmills may plane the rough lumber that they make with a planing machine to achieve smoothness and uniformity of size.
