About Us:

    Our lumber company started in 1979. We started with a circular sawmill, but switched to a bandmill to enable us to produce 25-30% more lumber from a log in order to save trees. We use our sawdust, bark, and shavings to mulch trees that we grow and are continuing to plant on our tree farm. We also have considerable knowledge in forestry and timber management. We are a family operation and intend to bring you the lumber you want at low prices without destroying the forests.

    We have our own Nyle dehumidification kiln and are starting a millwork facility. We also maintain 100+ acres of trees from 1 year old to mature on our tree farm. We do the entire process from growing the tree all the way through the finished product, eliminating all the middle men, and creating lower prices for you, the consumer. We also buy local logs and lumber; and salvage trees before they end up in someone's firewood pile or landfill. 50% of our profits is going towards the purchase of tropical forest land in South America in order to prevent it from being destroyed and lost forever.  Thank you for your support!
