Why Wood?

From Seeds to Sawdust

Wood is nature’s sustainable building block. It’s the choice material for everything from backyard designs and mid-rise buildings to utility poles, marine applications and railroads. Building with wood is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, support local businesses and increase the natural beauty in your life. Together with our customers, we support a better quality of life for our communities by delivering products that enhance the performance and increase the longevity of wood.
