Potlatch Corporation is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, that owns and manages 1.5 million acres of timberlands located in Arkansas, Idaho and Minnesota and a 17,000-acre hybrid poplar plantation in Oregon. Through a taxable REIT subsidiary we also operate 15 manufacturing facilities that are engaged in the production of commodity wood products and bleached pulp products. The company traces its history to the founding in 1903 of Potlatch Lumber Co.
Potlatch Lumber and Panels “We make a wide range of wood products for industrial and consumer use at our facilities in Arkansas, Idaho, Minnesota, and Michigan.
In Arkansas, we make lumber from Southern yellow pine. Our Idaho mills produce lumber from several species, a full line of cedar products, a variety of fingerjoint edge-glued lumber products, and industrial-grade fir plywood and particleboard.
In the Great Lakes region, our Minnesota and Michigan mills produce precision-cut studs and finger-jointed studs in spruce, pine, and fir (SPFs).
Many of our lumber and panel products can be purchased with chain-of-custody certification under the strict standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC certification is a third-party standard audited by either the Rainforest Alliance’s Smartwood® program or Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), both leading third-party certifiers.”
