"Gutchess Lumber is not only a fifth-generation family owned business but we're also an ESOP. ESOP stands for Employee Stock Ownership Plan. As our employees retire, the company repurchases their shares and recycles those shares to new participants, which perpetuates the employee ownership. Our employees are self motivated employee owners

Our longevity and reputation are testaments to the commitment we made close to 120 years ago – to provide our customers with quality products and service. 

With seven lumberyards and sawmills, our continued success over the years can be attributed to operating in the heart of the premium growth area for northern hardwoods as well as our unwavering commitment to quality. We maintain this quality by being fully integrated, from timberlands to sawmills to dry kilns. We control the process from start to finish to ensure our customers always receive the finest quality hardwood lumber available.
