It’s official, our NEW Columbia Forest Products, Boardman, Oregon plant is now open and helping to produce more of our decorative-quality hardwood plywood products! This newest mill upgrade in Boardman is a $9 million dollar venture that will assure an efficient supply of core veneer to be used at our Columbia Forest ProductsKlamath Falls plywood mill.

The Boardman facility was specifically constructed to be in close proximity to our wood source, GreenWood Tree Plantation, which is a 35,000 acre tree farm and hardwood sawmill complex. The Collins Companies manage the Boardman sawmill and markets lumber under the brand of Pacific Albus, which refers to hybrid poplar varieties developed by GreenWood Resource. The upgrade means poplar veneer will be peeled at the Boardman mill before being transferred to Klamath Falls for drying and gluing.
