Weyerhaeuser is one of the world's largest timber, land and forest products companies. We employ thousands of people in businesses that grow, harvest and sell trees, make a range of forest products essential to everyday life, and steward our land to maximize the value of every acre.

We are proud managers of a remarkable, renewable resource — forests — that, when managed well, can provide jobs, products, renewable energy, recreation and environmental benefits for many generations to come.

Our value chain is quite simple.

We plant and care for trees

We start by planting trees, lots of them. Each year, we plant millions of tree seedlings, most of which were grown in our own nurseries.

We sustainably grow and manage trees

We manage our forests sustainably, over many decades, and help others manage their lands equally well.

We responsibly source materials and create useful products

Once harvested, we turn our trees into useful wood products for society. We also sell our logs to other manufacturing companies that do the same.


MORE THAN A CENTURY OF EXPERTISE

Our expert tree-planting crews ensure our seedlings are planted correctly and given the best possible chance for survival. Over the last decade, we've planted more than 1 billion tree seedlings. 

SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT

Our timberlands are located primarily in North America. In the United States, we own and manage close to 13 million acres of sustainable timberlands in 20 states. In Uruguay, we own or lease 309,000 acres. In Canada, we manage timberlands under long-term licenses that provide wood fiber to our manufacturing facilities. Read more about our approach to sustainable forestry.

The wood we grow on our own timberlands is sold directly to our wood products mills or to customers all over the world. Read about where our logs go in our Annual Report.

We hire qualified logging professionals when harvesting our timberlands and require other forest landowners from whom we buy wood to do the same.

RESPONSIBLY-SOURCED MATERIALS

By far, the largest and most critical link in our supply chain is raw wood fiber (in the form of logs and chips), which we convert into wood products. We supply our own wood fiber and we buy additional wood fiber from other forest owners.

Our Wood Procurement Policy ensures we and our sources do not cause or encourage destruction of forest areas at risk of loss from unsustainable practices or illegal logging. We conduct due diligence and document the species and country of origin of our products on our Product Environmental Profiles.

Our commitment to responsible fiber sourcing is verified through our certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Fiber Sourcing standard, which ensures the wood fiber in our supply chain comes from legal and responsible sources, whether the forests are certified or not. Read more about how we promote sustainable forest management with all of our wood suppliers and more about our certification programs.

At our manufacturing facilities, we produce most of our own energy with biomass residuals, but we still purchase some fuel and electricity to supplement our energy needs. We also rely heavily on transportation and logistics providers to move our raw material and our finished products from our forests to our mills and to our customers.

WE CREATE USEFUL PRODUCTS

We are proud that our company makes useful products for society. Our lumber and engineered wood products are used to construct commercial buildings and homes where people raise their families. And we responsibly deliver the most value from every acre — in some cases, providing recreation access, energy production, and conservation.
