— Ralph Waldo Emerson
We utilize primarily Lodge Pole Pine and Western White Spruce for the majority of our production. Tamarack (larch), Birch, Black Poplar (cottonwood) and Trembling Aspen are species also employed, but not limited to the manufacture of a wide variety of products at our facility.
We do not harvest timber, but rather, re-work lumber and wood products which have been manufactured by others. Our wood supply includes byproduct from sawmills that would be otherwise wasted or converted to wood chips or destroyed.
All of the fiber we process, and waste created, including the sawdust and shavings are utilized. Nothing is wasted. We are an environmentally responsible company and a committed member of the ForestCare program.
We also manufacture high quality wooden components for a patented outdoor deck system, fencing, picnic tables, etc. Yellowhead Wood Products Inc. also provides custom services including heat treating: kiln drying, PET or DET trimming, planing, and packaging to name a few.
Our commitment is to manufacture high-quality products, to provide service equal to our product, to be careful, safe, and productive, to deal with each other, and with others fairly, to be mindful of the needs of the community and environment and to grow with our suppliers and our customers.
