Inside This Issue

The Issues: Wish You Were Here (Or I Was There)

So it was with a broken heart, I realized that the Timber Processing & Energy Expo was just not going to happen this year in Portland, Oregon. My heart was broken because I wanted to see the crowds gather around the latest drone video from a new sawmill on display. It was broken because I wouldn’t be buzzing around with beer tickets catching up with old friends and making new ones. But, by choosing to cancel our 2020 event we are able to wait, make sure the world is a safer place for us to all crowd the brat line and wonder if the Oregon Ducks really have what it takes to beat the SEC in a playoff game. 2022 (September 28-30 to be exact) will be better and safer for our industry to have its family reunion in Portland.

Freres Is Beaming Over New Carriage

Article by Dan Shell, Senior Editor, Timber Processing

LYONS, Oregon – Recent innovations at family-owned Freres Lumber Co. not only solidify the company’s position as a key West Coast veneer and plywood panel supplier, but also as a pioneer in the growing mass timber construction movement. The company’s traditional veneer and plywood operations and the new Mass Plywood Panel (MPP) operation are backed by the latest technologies to run more efficiently at lower cost.

And now a new bandmill line and one of the longest carriages in North America give the Freres MPP facility the capability to produce beam and column products that compete with glulam. This makes Freres the only producer in the U.S. that can make every wooden component of a mass timber project, from floors and walls to beams and columns.
