Roseburg says that it was among the first in the industry to set aside some of its own land in order to study and improve upon fish habitat. “Several years ago, we began working with Oregon State University and other agencies on a company-owned area near the Hinkle Creek Watershed to gain current research on the effects of logging on fish.  We are now lobbying other companies to replicate the study on their own lands.” Roseburg is a self-sufficient manufacturer having ownership of 750,000 acres of timberland supplying the majority of wood fiber they use to produce their products.

  • Our EWP products enable builders to use timber resources more efficiently, less waste
  • We offer composite panels and plywood products that have no added urea formaldehyde when manufactured
  • We have biomass cogeneration plants, which use wood waste material from our mills to produce clean energy for our plants and nearby communities
  • We produce a broad array of products that are SCS, and EPP certified
  • California timberlands that are third party certified for their sustainability
  • Integrated manufacturing facilities dramatically reduce vehicle carbon emissions
  • We plant over 5 million tree seedlings annually
  • We are progressively involved in stream research and enhancement

“From the co-generation plants that convert waste material into energy, which provides power for our manufacturing facilities, to the 5 million seedlings planted annually, Roseburg is committed to being a good steward of the environment.”
