Bray Log & Lumber

Why Wood?

Wood is the ultimate renewable resource. We have lush forests in Oregon and the Northwest that are some of the finest timber in the world. Oregon ships lumber around the world and for construction and beauty nothing compares to the softwood species you find in our forests waiting and growing to become the most perfect building materials ever developed. Our forests are being managed and harvested to produce the healthiest trees to grow tall and strong to be turned into the products we are offering on this site.

The difference between a managed forest and one set aside to satisfy the environmentalists is the managed forests are far healthier than the unmanaged ones. When they are unmanaged weed forests tend to take over and choke out the Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pine which are the majestic giants of the forest. The faster growing lodgepole pine tends to take over and grow close together not only choking out the other species but eventually choke themselves out leading to the giant bug kills and forest fires we are experiencing now. The managed forests can literally stand in the way of a forest fire and either stop it or the fire will only burn the underbrush leaving the giant trees untouched then reigniting back into the unhealthy forests.

When we harvest and rotate the managed forests we not only develop the marketable resources but actually make these forests far healthier. You can know that when they cut the trees to help build your home the forest managers will be planting more trees than they cut so 18-20 years they will be harvesting the next healthy generation of trees. These forests are not only healthier for the trees but the wildlife flourishes in the managed forests with the grass in the clear cuts feeding elk, deer and every other grazing animal which feeds the bear, cougar and other predators leading to a more vibrant web of life.
