Welcome to AFT Sawmill

AFT Sawmill has been in operation since 1978. It was born out of necessity as the source for lumber for the A. F. Theriault & Son Ltd. boatyard in Meteghan River, Nova Scotia.

AFT Sawmill buys logs from all areas of western Nova Scotia.

AFT Sawmill produces 2-3 million board feet per year of green and kiln dried lumber.

All lumber is graded by a NHLA lumber grader and dried on-site in our new Nyle dehumidification kiln.

  • Select & better
  • # 1 common
  • 2 & 3 common


  • Soft and hard maple
  • Yellow and white birch
