Wherever houses are being renovated or new neighborhoods are taking shape, wood is a logical choice for today’s environmentally conscious homeowner. From framing lumber to flooring and roofing components, Resolute’s wood products are always on the job.
Resolute Forest Products is a major producer of lumber and other wood products for the residential construction and home renovation markets, as well as for specialized structural and industrial applications.
We operate 15 sawmills in Canada that produce construction-grade lumber sold in North America, as well as two remanufactured wood products facilities, two joint-venture engineered wood products facilities and a wood pellet plant.
Our sawmills produce stud and dimension spruce-pine-fir (SPF) lumber and are a major source of wood chips for our pulp and paper mills. They also generate wood waste, which we use to fuel our power cogeneration assets and other operations, as well as to produce wood pellets. In 2015, we shipped 1.6 billion board feet of construction-grade lumber within North America.
100% of the lands we manage are certified to CSA, Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) or Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) responsible forest management standards.
Resolute has implemented fiber tracking systems at all wood products facilities to ensure the wood fiber supply comes from acceptable sources, such as sustainably managed and certified forests and legal harvesting operations.
At several facilities, these systems are third-party certified to recognized chain of custody (CoC) standards.
For details on where our certifications are held, visit the Certification by Operation page.
Trees absorb and store carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. The extended service life of durable lumber and building products manufactured by Resolute prolongs the natural carbon-storing benefits provided by our forests.
