Alder Lumber - Made Easy.

At Cascade Hardwood Group, our innovative processes, online tools, and unmatched personal service make it easy to get the lumber you need – on grade and on time.

It all started over 50 years ago at the Cascade mill
with just five employees, excellent log supply resources, and extensive experience in the Forest Products Industry. Today, Cascade Hardwood and Port Angeles Hardwood are thriving companies that provide high quality Alder, Ash and Maple hardwood lumber for the furniture and cabinet industries worldwide.

From Trees to Logs to Lumber to You: How it all goes down.

  1. Harvesting the trees

    Cascade Hardwood is committed to a healthy sustainable alder hardwood market. We actively educate logging operators in the unique characteristics and handling requirements necessary to bring the highest value product to market. We are Forest Stewardship Council TM (FSC®) Certified, an independent, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

  2. Choosing the logs

    Cascade Hardwood receives logs from private ownership as well as from contracts with large timber owners and state ownership. If you have large or small quantities of Alder timber to sell, contact our Log Buying group for the latest market prices.

  3. Milling the lumber

    From debarking and sawing to grading and sorting, one of our two sawmills transforms logs to lumber. Large investments in production facilities, employee training, and process control allow both mills to produce the very best Alder, Maple and Ash hardwood lumber available.
