Each of us on the Kretz Lumber Company team is dedicated to creating lasting legacies through proper forest management.

Kretz Lumber Company is a member of many state and national forestry trade associations and actively collaborates with forestry and conservation programs throughout North America. We are dedicated to educating private landowners and future generations about how their decisions impact our forests and will continually work to advance sustainable forest management.
