Wood chips are a byproduct of our lumber manufacturing process. Fibre remaining after the log has been debarked and our premium lumber has been extracted is utilized to produce wood chips.
The debarking process produces a clean chip product then the chips are screened to remove the sawdust and ensure the chips meet a uniform size.
We sell green wood chips under contract to ALPAC pulp mills for softwood pulp production. The wood chips are stored in 15 foot high, 20 foot long overhead bins. We have 120 BDU’s of storage capacity on site for wood chips (about enough to fill six b-train chip vans).
The minimum height we allow to load from our bins is 11 feet to a maximum of 14 feet, 6 inches. The truck must be a minimum of 24 feet long to fit under a bin hopper.
