With the help of professional foresters, Longyear sustainably manages more than 164,000 acres of company-owned forestlands in Michigan and Canada and relies primarily on natural regeneration of the forest.
Our professional foresters also assist private landowners with timber sales following sound environmental principles. In addition, our procurement staff actively purchases forest products from landowners and suppliers to ensure products are available to meet our customers' needs.
Longyear has designed its forest operations to serve and enhance long-term customer and supplier relationships. By consistently focusing on these relationships and needs even as markets change, Longyear ensures its customer a consistent and reliable source of high quality forest products from an environmentally responsible source. Our experienced sales staff and log yards provide a safe, organized environment so our customers can purchase concentrated volumes of products sorted and manufactured to their specific needs. Longyear also provides a convenient opportunity for suppliers to sell their logs at a competitive price and scale and receive prompt payment.
