In any given year, Roseburg harvests approximately 2% of its 600,000 acres of timberland to supply local manufacturing operations. Our foresters replant 6 million new trees annually, contributing to an average growth rate of 7%. This means not only is Roseburg providing local wood to fulfill production demand, but we are also simultaneously adding more trees to the states of Oregon, North Carolina and Virginia every year. We do all of this while protecting and investing in our water, soil, fish and wildlife resources. Roseburg is truly committed to sustainable forest management.


Lumber manufacturing process

VERTICALLY INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING

Logs that go to our plywood facilities are peeled for veneer and laid up into a wide product offering of hardwood and softwood plywood panels.

Our state-of-the-art sawmill utilizes the most advanced technology to maximize the use of wood fiber in the production of lumber

Both lumber and veneer products supply our engineered wood plant in the production of LVL and I-joists.

All facilities send their residuals to our particleboard and MDF plants, where we reuse over 1 million tons of wood residual material every year.

After all this, any excess wood residuals are converted into green energy and used to power the same manufacturing plants they originated from. In 2017, this process generated over 200 million kilowatt-hours of power!
