Where: Marks Lumber, 30 Lump Gulch, Clancy, MT 59634
In 2011, the Montana Legislature established the third week of October (17-23) as Montana Forest Products Week. The week is dedicated to honoring the forest products industry and extending its appreciation to the industry for providing locally-made wood products, stewardship of our private and public forests, and gainful employment.
In support of Montana Forest Products Week, Marks Lumber will be hosting its fifth annual Mill Tour and Customer Appreciation Day on Friday, October 15th, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Free lunch will be provided at the event by Adventure Dogs – a local Helena food truck.
Tours of the Mill
The tours will be held throughout the day and will allow people to see how our lumber is made from start to finish. Watch as the log is de-barked, fed to the sawyer, and then processed into timbers and full-dimension rough lumber on the head rig. See how the lumber is dried in our bio-fuel-powered kiln and produced into our beautiful finish products, such as flooring and siding. Also, see the variety of by-products that are sold as landscape material and bio-fuel to ensure a zero-waste operation!
Stick around after the tour to learn more about our current sustainability initiative, the benefits the forest products industry has on our forests, and what we can do to help create lasting, healthy forests for years to come.
