Revitalizing Communities & Forests



From Local Logs to Lasting Legacies.

Hat Creek Lumber is cultivating resilience: with forest care and community development.



Our forests and communities are facing growing challenges

• Wildfires threaten human & forest health.
• Community-scale sawmills have been lost in the region over the past four decades.

• There are fewer employment & community development opportunities.
• Investment for wood processing facilities is extremely difficult.
• Increased treatment volume is mismatched to existing wood processing capacity.

But within our community rose the ingenuity, experience, and creativity to devise a solution.
