Log Inventory

With the principal material of log homes being that of logs, formerly trees, a good deal of attention is directed towards obtaining Roundwood’s log inventory. Stands of White Spruce, Lodgepole Pine and Douglas Fir are plentiful in the area, western Red Cedar grows 400 miles away and is a good choice for most Log Buildings. Depending on style of building, budget, and personal taste all of these wood species make a good choice. Size of logs are more limited in pine, and cedar is often a good choice if insects & humidity are an issue. Douglas Fir is often used for structural members, white Spruce has good size & shape and is probably the least expensive of logs but has some issues with checking and rot if left out in the weather.

Roundwood will use whichever species a customer prefers and likes to work with customers to make sure they get the most suitable wood species for their project & budget.
