We are pleased to announce that we have moved in to a fourth location at 16 Transport Park in Rockingham, Vermont, the site formerly utilized as a log yard by Northeast Timber Exchange for more than 20 years. We know this is an excellent area for the types of logs we are looking for, and with the continued strong markets we are aggressively targeting all grades and species and hope our competitive pricing will bring a lot of material into this new site.

Hours of operation in Rockingham are 7am to 3:30 PM, 5 days a week; if you need to schedule something outside of those times it can be done by appointment. Trucks with loaders are welcome to bring loads in any time.
