Sierra Pacific Industries continues to seek new and innovative methods to utilize 100% of its forest resource. During each sawing and milling operation, state-of-the-art technology, machinery, and skilled operators yield the maximum wood fiber from the logs or lumber. Chips, bark, shavings, and sawdust are the by-products that are produced from lumber and millwork manufacturing. Today, 100% of the wood fiber coming from the forest is used in one form or another to provide products for consumers.
SPI's ash is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic production.
