AFRC is proud and excited to welcome three new members to the Association: Timber Products Company, Mt. Hood Forest Products, and the Associated California Loggers. Timber Products Company was founded in 1918 and specializes in hardwood plywood and a range of other wood products including softwood plywood, particleboard, decorative overlays, hardwood and softwood veneers, and hardwood lumber. The family company owns and manages 115,000 acres of forest lands in Northern California under the strict standards of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and owns nine state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities across the United States. Corporate headquarters are located in Springfield, Oregon.
Mt. Hood Forest Products (MHFP) is owned by the Wilkins brothers, Bill and Brad, and is located in Hood River, Oregon. The mill at MHFP produces 100 percent green Douglas fir lumber, sourcing nearly half of its input from federal, state, and county forestlands. MHFP employs a “Baxley CrossCut Edger system” that was designed by Bill Wilkins and Baxley Equipment to maximize efficiency. The company supports more than 45 jobs in the Hood River area.
The Associated California Loggers (ACL) is, an association of loggers in California. ACL began in 1973 in response to mounting California forestry regulation, providing a collective voice, for those who perform the dangerous, exciting work of harvesting and transporting wood to California’s forest product businesses. ACL is made up of more than 350 highly skilled, passionate and knowledgeable members.
AFRC is thrilled to grow the “family” of members. Timber Products Company, Mt. Hood Forest Products and ACL bring unique voices, experience and expertise, and creative thinking to AFRC’s already outstanding membership.
