About  Us

Central Missouri Sawmill & Logging

Long story short

To say Randy Burke has grown up in the timber industry is an understatement. His rich family history of logging, saw milling and working in the timber industry started way back in the late 1800’s. Two of his Great Grandpa’s were cutting trees with cross cut saws and moving them around with a team of mules.

The pride and tradition of this industry was passed down to Randy’s Grandpa’s, then his Dad, and finally to him. Randy began working in the woods with his Dad during the summers at a very early age. Due to this rich family heritage, the preservation and care of our forests is of the utmost importance to Randy. With the proper care and harvesting, the forests will remain vibrant and thriving to ensure the logging industry can thrive for generations to come.

Randy Burke and his wife RaShell are the sole shareholders of Burke Sawmill, Inc., which produces a variety of high quality timber products such as rail road cross ties, cants for pallet construction, steel blocking for steel companies, and pipe skids used for pipeline construction. Incorporated since 1995, they also own Burke Timber Sales, LLC, which is the timber purchasing and logging company division. Both are locally owned family businesses.

Randy and RaShell have a great love for the outdoors and a strong desire to do their part to ensure the lasting sustainability of Missouri’s 14 million acres of forest land. Their roots run strong and deep here in the heart of Central Missouri.

It is in our best interest to use best practices to ensure your woodland can produce healthy quality timber for years to come. We hope you will call us to give you a free quote on your timber harvest.

We have all the logging tools, let us Help You!
