About Us

Rooted in excellence

  • Small seedling

Seed to Solution

We grow trees on our own land from the seedlings we plant. We responsibly manage the timber, harvest it and then bring it to our own mills. From there, we manufacture and deliver the high-quality wood products you count on every day.

Products for Every Need

We specialize in hardwood plywood and wood panels with decorative overlays. From veneer to ultralight MDF to particle board, we offer an incredible variety of wood products. And if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, we can custom manufacture what you need.

Responsible Manufacturing

All of our products are responsibly created with the environment in mind. We continually improve processes to reduce waste. We use no-added formaldehyde (NAF) based resins or ultra-low-emitting formaldehyde (ULEF) resins to reduce emissions. And our prefinished panels emit zero formaldehyde because of the UV finishing technology we use.
