Manufacturers of High Quality Wood Products

We specialize in creating the highest quality products across the wood products spectrum from raw log to finished products.

Mass Plywood Panel


MPP is a massive, large scale, structural composite lumber based panel designed as an alternative to Cross Laminated Timbers (CLT). CLT products have been used in Europe for decades as a substitute for concrete construction, and have recently been used in multi-story construction in the United States.


Stacked Veneer


The vast majority of the veneer that we manufacture is made from Douglas Fir due to the high quality of the species’ wood fiber.

Douglas Fir Plywood


Freres Lumber Co., has been the industry leader in the production of high-quality sheathing and touch sanded plywood panels since 1998.

Douglas Fir Lumber


Our primary lumber products are variations of 2×3 through 4×6 dimensions in softwood species such as Douglas Fir or Hemlock.
