Minimizing Waste, Maximizing Yield

Parton Lumber is constantly looking for ways to maximize yield of resources so that waste is to a minimum. Logs are sawn with band mills having a very narrow kerf. Slabs are chipped for the paper industry. Sawdust fuels burn efficient boilers. Planer shavings are accumulated and marketed. Bark is ground into mulch for landscape businesses. And with poplar bark, another eco-friendly commodity can be made which is poplar bark siding for homes and buildings.

Our company will continue to seek out ways to provide satisfying forest products while maintaining the integrity of the environment. With Parton Lumber, you can rest assured that impact upon the environment will remain low while quality wood commodities remain superb.
