Wood purchasing

Our log purchasing process starts with conscientious planning. Regardless of whether mill gate, roadside or contract harvesting, preserving the natural resource wood and using it in a sustainable manner are our top priority. State of the art communication technology and equipment allow us to work in a targeted and effective manner.

Our processes are automated right from the start. Logs are sorted by wood type, length, diameter and quality. We normally harvest Spruce, Pine, Douglas fir and Larch.
