From Logs to Lumber. Amazing short videoPosted: November 10, 2015
The thought rarely crosses most people’s minds as to how lumber is produced. Not only is wood the perfect product for housing and protecting your family, but it’s also Mother Earth’s solution for protecting all of us, think of it as carbon Tupperware! I’ll address this further along with forest carbon sequestration in a future blogpost.
Check out this short video from Vaagen Brothers Lumber and witness wood’s journey from logs to lumber.
Forward Thinking. Respecting the Past.
Ask most people to tell you about the lumber industry, and you’ll get a fairly predictable list of descriptions. What you’re not likely to hear are terms like: technologically advanced, sustainable logging, small log harvesting, green lumber products, commitment to healthy communities, or ecologically minded forest management. But when people talk about Vaagen Brothers, those are exactly the kind of things you’ll hear.
Specializing in the production of lumber from smaller diameter logs, Vaagen Brothers has been working in the forests of northeast Washington for more than 50 years. We’ve learned to take the best of traditional logging and lumber milling practices and combine them with advanced production technologies and forward-thinking, sustainable forest management practices to create a company that’s as vibrant and growing as the healthy forests and ecosystems necessary for its success.
