So Live!: Rough & Ready Lumber Company

Russ Batzer, President of Batzer Construction also hosts a local news talk show Monday through Thursday each week from 6am-8am.

Whenever the topic is about the construction industry, we’ll post the topics here, so everyone can find out the  latest construction news from Southern Oregon.

In this interview, Jennifer Phillipi, owner of Rough & Ready Lumber in Cave Junction, talks about what it’s taken for them to be the sole surviving saw mill in Jackson & Josephine County.       The Chew Choo timber sale on BLM land was just withdrawn by the BLM and this has a big impact on log supply for the competitive lumber industry.   At this time, Rough and Ready Lumber is trucking in logs from as far away as 300 miles, to keep their mill busy.
