At Gutchess Lumber, we pride ourselves on producing the best Northern hardwoods on the market. We’re fifth generation led, we’re employee owned, and we’re so much more than just the best Northern hardwoods producer. Take a minute to learn about who we are and some of the things we do:
We support local communities
We started as a sawmill on a small farm in upstate New York in 1904 and we appreciate the impact of local communities. We gladly support and share in the growth of the local communities that we operate within across all seven of our locations in New York and Pennsylvania.
We support sustainability
Did you know we own over 30,000 acres of our own forestland? Our team of professionally trained foresters ensure each forest that we work with is responsibly managed and harvested on 15 and 30 year cycles. This promotes forest regeneration and carbon sequestration, which provides environmental, social, and economic benefits (we have the FSC certification to prove it).
We support education
As one example of our commitment to education, the Gutchess family created an endowed scholarship at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry to assist students in their higher education and learning journeys. Gutchess is also proud to offer some of the best internships
We support our employee owners
Gutchess Lumber is an ESOP company, which makes our employees our owners. Each employee owner has a unique opportunity to learn and grow to their full potential. Vice President Brian Conklin started at Gutchess Lumber in stackdown, Director of Financial Planning and Analysis Patrick Viscome started as a financial analyst intern, and Director of IT Justin St. John started as an information technology associate.
