Sterling Lumber harvests, manufactures, stocks and cut-to-length industrial lumber.
Sterling Lumber Company's Proactive Effort
To minimize or alleviate the impact of the hardwood shortage on customers, Sterling Lumber Company has made a large commitment to sourcing timber, additional equipment and people, while positively managing timber resources and the environment. We keep track of all of our cut timber so we can utilize our resources wisely.
Another Timber Source
In the Chicago area, almost 50 tree cutting services work endlessly removing diseased and dying ash and white oak trees from the community to the point where they have nowhere to put the timber. Sterling Lumber has negotiated to accept timber from the Chicagoland communities and their contracted tree cutting services – repurposing local timber.
