Longleaf Lumber Berwick Employees

On a recent hot and dusty June afternoon, Boston-based portrait and lifestyle photographer Samara Vise visited the Longleaf Lumber reclaimed lumber mill in Berwick, ME. Our mill team was prepared with their cleanest clothes and brightest smiles!

Samara spent the day with our team, photographing the salvaged wood being resawn, planed, ripped, and moulded into flooring and paneling. She also shot some photos around the yard and at the strapping station, where our reclaimed wood flooring is defected, bundled, and measured – all by hand. Samara also took some shots of Hugh and John as they made reclaimed wood countertops and tabletops. She caught them ripping, on the jointer, and preparing boards for glue-up. The gallery below showcases some of her best images.
