As a part of this production we also have a mill at our site to process pulpwood into lumber. We produce dimension lumber (2 X 4, 2 X 6, 2 X 8 and 2 X 10), timbers (4 X 4, 4 X 6, and 6 X 6) boards (1 X 4 and 1 X 6), radius edge decking (5/4 X 6), and various other specialized products.
Our lumber is graded under rules published by the Southern Pine Inspection Bureau who also inspect our mill to insure we maintain our quality standards.
We sell chips to area paper mills. Most of our sawdust is used internally to provide heat for our dry kilns. When we have excess sawdust it is sold to a local paper mill for their energy production. Our shavings are sold to local MDF plants or processed into fuel pellets. Our bark is sold to bark processors or to a local paper mill for their energy production.
We have a one-megawatt solar farm that supplies a portion of the electricity for our sawmill.
Our lumber is sold mainly in the southeastern United States.
We take pride in managing our timberlands for sustainable production of timber and as a home for wildlife. We have been producing lumber here since 1931 and have made a significant investment in the future of our mill based on the sustainable productivity of our land and our neighbors.
The trees which supply our mill are grown within a 75 mile radius of the mill.
