Where We Get our timber…

While most, if not all our timber is recovered from our farm or the surrounding area. It is very important to us that the trees we harvest are chosen correctly. Most of our timber has already fallen, but the ones that haven’t are harvested practicing proper forest management skills. Proper forest management includes selective harvesting techniques whereby only the mature, overcrowded, diseased, or dying trees are removed. These practices improve the health of the forest by increasing regeneration and by allowing younger trees to obtain the sunlight, water, and nutrients necessary to achieve growth. This process results in faster growing and higher quality trees, better wildlife habitat with an increase in both food and shelter, and leave behind a more productive and higher quality timber stand for future generations.

We are proud to partner with selected timber suppliers who share our ideals when it comes to sustainability.
