Feel free to move elsewhere I apologize if this is an incorrect category for this post.


My name is Brian I live in Mesa Arizona and am looking for a supplier of hardwood sawdust. I own a specialty farm and I go through a lot of it. My current supplier can only offer about 2-3 tons a month. I’m going through everything he has.

Over the next 12 months my expansion will eventually require about 40tons a month.

I cannot have pine or conifers in the sawdust or my fruits do not grow. Each batch will be pre tested to ensure there is no pine. I would prefer Alder sawdust but oak or similar usually works as well.

I’ll pay for it, I know a lot of people have it as waste but it’s tough to find in bulk. Even if someone is willing convert alder to just sawdust for me you’ll have a residual monthly buyer that grows.

Thank you very much and I apologize for just coming here for business. Looks like you have a nice forum here.

I am so glad for your visit- forget all that gibber jabber- You should only use ALDER- with exception of the conifers, their dust is to be used in particle board, for caskets or coffins.

Have you contacted Ocotillo Lumber?

They generate mountains of sawdust. Know very little about saw dust sales.

They tend to sell mostly wholesale, with some retail sales. Major retail products are decorative building parts like; large knee braces, corbels, vigas, and latillas for external use or open air structures; but those are typically softwoods. But, the pallet operation processes hardwood?

Best Luck.

Look around for a custom cabinet shop. There is one near me that has mountains of hardwood sawdust.
