Why We're Portland's Most Awesome Lumberyard

Top 5 Reasons Why Sustainable Northwest Wood is Portland's Most Awesome Lumber Yard

Here are some of the reasons why Sustainable Northwest Wood is Portland's most rockin' place to buy lumber and wood products:

1. Local and sustainable sourcing - Everything we carry is from the Pacific Northwest and is grown in forests managed to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council ® or as part of stewardship programs restoring native ecosystems. We are 100% committed to sustainable wood -- it is our entire product offering, not just a small percentage of what we carry. 

We also work to shrink the size of our footprint and provide products sourced as close to home as possible. This focus allows us to be the premier lumber supplier for Living Building Challenge projects in our region. 

2. Support for small sawmills - We are guided by the mission of supporting small mills in rural communities, bolstering sustainable economic development and job creation. We provide our sawyers with fair compensation, regardless of what the lumber commodity market tries to dictate. By working directly with local mills, we are also able to offer our specialty products at competitive prices.

3. Convenient inner-city location -  Come to our Portland showroom,  enjoy a hot cup of coffee and tell us about your project.   Our friendly, experienced team will help match your needs with the perfect NW species for the look, performance and price that you are after. Easy access for cars, trucks, and bikes. Come visit us today!

4. Large product selection - From framing lumber to flooring, rustic landscaping timbers to high-quality hardwoods, we've got local wood products for every aspect of your building project. Explore more inspiration on our website  snwwood.com

5. Support a non-profit organization - We're a wholly-owned subsidiary of the conservation non-profit Sustainable Northwest and the first lumberyard to be owned by a non-profit. Sustainable Northwest works throughout the Pacific Northwest to forge collaborative solutions that restore forests, rivers, rangelands, and rural economies.

Oh, and we like to have FUN
