Unaka Forest Products
At Unaka Forest Products in Jonesborough, we work differently. While our competitors rely on the wood from large sawmills, we source our lumber from smaller, local suppliers. Instead of paying a premium for full-sized tree trunks, we're able to utilize the smaller logs that would otherwise go to mulch.
By cutting out the large sawmills, we're able to reduce costs significantly; and we pass these savings onto our clients, garnering local business support at the same time.
The lumber that we source in this way is all high-grade pallet lumber. Bigger sawmills ignore it because these logs aren't worth their effort. These companies rather use the best wood to create planks, driving up prices, and using any rejected pieces or off-cuts to create pallets.
We are different—by supporting the smaller companies, we're able to find high-quality products at competitive prices. It's a win-win for everyone.
As an IPPC-certified pallet manufacturer
, we’re also able to create pallets suitable for international transport. Our heat treatment facility and processes kill off fungus, mold, and insects that might be present in the raw wood.
We’re in complete control of our production and deliveries, working an innovative inventory system, which makes it possible to get most orders to our clients within 24 hours.
We’re not only a wood pallet company
. We also offer high-grade pre-cut lumber.
Speak to us about the sizes and quantities you need. We cut the lumber ourselves and offer you highly competitive prices.
It might sound strange for a lumber company
to talk about “being green,” but our primary focus is on sustainable production. We use every possible part of the tree to cut back on waste and minimize our footprint.
We chip pieces that are too small to be used for planks or wooden pallet supply
, too. Our team is particularly proud of our bio-fuel chips, a high-grade alternative to burning fossil fuels.
We like to do our part for the environment and to reduce America's reliance on oil imports.
When we say that we use every part of the tree, we mean it. We sell the sawdust and tiny bits and pieces that won’t work as bio-fuel separately. It makes a nutritious mulch for your garden, and it is safe to use on your vegetable garden as we use heat treatments, not chemicals.
