Tour of Cascade Hardwood Mill

WHEN: June 12, 4:00 pm

WHERE: 158 Ribelin Road, Chehalis WA 98532

During the log yard tour, we will be able to look at a group of logs which has been scaled and detail on the scaling will be available for each participant for active discussion. I believe often logs which could produce some lumber are discarded to pulp due to crooks sweeps or other imperfections. What a great opportunity to see firsthand what the purchasers want and don’t want in the quality of logs.

We will have the opportunity for a sawmill tour after the log yard tour. The mill will not be running during the tour; however, we can discuss the mill, see the equipment and the process of turning logs into lumber. We will then tour the finished lumber storage area where it all awaits shipping to its destination and the fine products that Cascade produces.

There will be FARM FORESTRY signs directing you to parking

The mill requires hi-vis vest and hard hat as well as sturdy, closed toe shoes for walking around the log yard and mill. Please bring these with you.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to cowlitz@wafarmforestry.com
