Sawmills aren't as common as as many other business types in the United States. Still, across the entire nation, there are more than 3,000 Sawmills. In other words, each one of those Sawmills serves about 100,000 citizens on average. According to national labor statistics, Sawmills will typically employ 1 to 4 employees. So, it's safe to say that Sawmills play an important role in the national economy.
