Paleto Forest Sawmill

The Paleto Forest Sawmill is an abandoned sawmill located in Paleto Forest, close to Paleto Bay, which appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. The sawmill features a number of small buildings and one large red building, which has a number of conveyor belts entering the building. The buildings are inaccessible to the player. Large amounts of lumber can be found around the site, which is used by the Ballas as a base for their drug dealing and manufacturing, paying the local police.

The protagonist of GTA Online can take on the O'Neil Brothers at the sawmill during the Sawmill Survival mission. The sawmill is also the main setting for the GTA V mission Lamar Down. Lamar had gone to the plant to take part in a drug deal with the Ballas, which had been set up by Stretch. The deal, however, was a planned ambush designed to kill Lamar. Franklin Clinton, after being told of the plot by ex-girlfriend Tanisha Jackson, works with Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips to rescue Lamar Davis from the sawmill.
