Our Mission
Our ideas will be groundbreaking, and our stewardship will be forever mindful of the ground we live on.

Hardwood Plywood
Columbia maintains a strong market presence in every plywood species, core and size category, including veneer core, medium density fiberboard (MDF), combination core and particleboard core. Wood species include ash, birch, cherry, hickory, maple, red oak, alder, walnut and many others.

In 1999, Columbia’s Klamath Falls, Oregon, plant began producing its plywood using logs harvested from Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) certified forestland. Today all of Columbia’s plywood and veneer mills hold FSC chain of custody certified by Rainforest Alliance, an independent, non-governmental organization with the published aims of working to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior. By buying products with an FSC label you are supporting the growth of responsible forest management worldwide.
