Sawmill

To process our wide variety of timber, Wood Products uses a band head-rig coupled to a semi-circle vertical band re-saw operation. The sawmill is completely optimized to eliminate variation and assure precise thickness. Three years ago, the entire sawmill was rebuilt and fully optimized with scanners and software that ensures maximum yield at the highest production levels. The mill is capable of producing 20 million board feet per year.

Kiln Dried

After the lumber is graded by our highly qualified and experienced graders, it is put up on the lumber yard to air dry. With over 600,000 BF (15,000 cubic meters) of dry kiln capacity, we keep over one million feet of kiln dried lumber in stock.

With two 900,000 board feet fan sheds to compliment the kilns, we are capable of drying 15,000,000 bf per year. One shed has been built with the second planned for this year.

In addition to Wood Products' production of hardwood lumber, the company has a full dimension line producing flooring, panels, cabinetry parts, and mouldings. When we boast of our timberlands being a valuable resource this also applies to any timber waste - of which there is none.

Bark is utilized as mulch for gardens, sawdust is used to fuel our boiler which produces steam for our kilns. All other waste is chipped and sold to fine paper mills. After precise kiln drying our lumber is re-graded, thereby providing additional quality to you our customer.
