Our Process & Lumber Yard Locations

At Gutchess, we think the best way to make a quality product is to control every step. This is why we oversee tens of thousands of acres of prime timberland and seven facilities located across New York and Pennsylvania to produce Gutchess Lumber. 

From timberlands to sawmills to dry kilns, from start to finish, we control the process to ensure our customers get the highest quality northern hardwood in the world.

Our Process

Quality from forest floor to your door

At Gutchess, we take great pride in producing premium products that exceed the expectations of demanding buyers worldwide.

Our products come from the best hardwood forests and timberlands in the northeast, several of which we have owned and managed ourselves for generations. 

Every board we manufacture and sell is sawn in our modern band mills, dried in our state-of-the-art kilns, and inspected by highly skilled and well-trained lumber inspectors at least twice, green and dry, to ensure accurate grade and tally, consistent quality, and maximum yield. Every board we sell is from Gutchess, we do not broker or wholesale lumber.

Our manufacturing standards and process controls are stringent and exacting from start to finish. In our industry, they are second to none. This is why you can buy from us with trust and confidence.

Quality isn’t just a word at Gutchess Lumber. Quality is our way of life. It’s what we do, day in and day out. 

It’s why people say, “Be sure it’s Gutchess.”
