About this Event

Jordan Lumber Company will host the 2019 N.C. Tree Farm Program Annual Meeting at their Mt. Gilead facility. The event will include a tour of their state-of-the-art sawmill and nearby timberlands

Founded in 1939, Jordan Lumber Company is the third-largest independent lumber producer in the Southeastern United States with five facilities and 650 employees. It manufactures diverse products including high-quality dimensional products, pallet parts and fencing parts with shipments to China, Taiwan and domestic markets. Jordan Lumber’s Mt. Gilead facility produces more than 1 million board feet per shift—enough lumber to build more than 70 average-size U.S. houses. Our tour will show you each step in the production process from the woodyard to the finished product.

Jordan’s 73,000 acres of timberland provide about one-fourth of the annual wood supply to the Mt. Gilead facility. Through improved genetics Jordan gets 200 percent more lumber off of an acre now than they did just 20 years ago with 1,100 tons or 44 truckloads of growth per day. Our tour will focus on their sustainable management, the strategies they implement to increase yield and how Tree Farmers can benefit from these management practices on their own land.

After the mill and woods tour, we’ll enjoy lunch together and celebrate the accomplishments of our Tree Farmers and volunteers, including recognition of Tree Farm anniversaries and naming of the 2019 Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year and Inspector of the Year.

Register by October 7.
