Our Manufacturing Operations

Our sawmill turns out around 12 million board feet of lumber annually. Our logs are sourced mainly from northern Wisconsin’s extensive private, state and federal forests, from woodlands that are marked for selective harvesting and timber stand improvement. This means that we are able to practice complete quality control, from the selection of the logs to drying and planing of the lumber to manufacture of specialty items. About 40% of our lumber is sold locally through our retail operations, with the rest going to wholesale customers, mainly in the Great Lakes region but often as far afield as Texas.

Pukall Lumber is one of the largest employers in the area, providing about 100 jobs between our manufacturing operations and our four retail locations.
