AFRC Welcomes Woodgrain as New Member

The American Forest Resource Council proudly welcomes Woodgrain as it newest member.  With sawmills in Idaho and Oregon, the company joins a growing trade association of logging and milling operations across the West.

“AFRC is proud to serve Woodgrain. We are committed to helping this company obtain the wood fiber it needs to manufacture world-class wood products in a global market,” said AFRC President Travis Joseph.

“The company relies, in part, on federally-owned forest lands for wood. National forests in Idaho and Oregon are highly vulnerable to fire, insects, and disease.  Through active forest management, it is possible to restore the health of these forests while supporting our rural communities. Without companies like Woodgrain, and the expertise and infrastructure they bring, landscape-scale forest restoration on federal lands is not possible.”

Woodgrain is one of the largest millwork operations in the world.  With more than 65 years of craftsmanship and service, the company makes quality wood mouldings, doors, and windows. Woodgrain is family owned and operated, with its 3rd generation leading the way.

AFRC advocates for sustained yield timber harvests on public timberlands to support rural communities and enhance forest health and resiliency. The association works to improve federal and state laws, regulations, policies and decisions regarding access to and management of public forest lands and protection of all forest lands.
