Pallet Lumber Processing
Southern Packaging manufactures pallet components from both hardwood and pine logs, cants, and boards.
Round wood is processed through our onsite sawmills and scragg mills.
The sawmill processes larger diameter round wood into pallet stock using
circular saws, edger saws, multi-trim saws, gang saws, and band saws.
The scragg mills processes small diameter round wood into pallet stock
using the same type equipment as the sawmill.
Square wood (cant) is green hardwood material purchased from other sawmills in a four state area.
Commonly available are 4"x 6" and 4"x 8" dimensions. Also 4/4 and 5/4
rough green hardwood boards are purchased. All square wood is cut up
into pallet components utilizing chop saws, band sizers, band re-saws,
circular trim saws, dedusters, notches, and automated stackers.
