|The Clarke Group is a third generation, family owned group of building product companies with operations in British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
Originating in 1969, The Clarke Group thrived supplying cedar shakes and shingles for North American homes during the building boom of the 1970's. Responding to the changing demands of homeowners and builders in the 80's, we expanded to include companies specializing in logging, custom cutting, wood treating, re-manufacturing and distribution.
Proudly, throughout our progress, we've retained our commitment to top quality products, preservation of the forest eco-system and personalized customer service.
Today our family of building product companies markets quality building materials worldwide. Our mandate is to provide the stability and strength of a large network, combined with the grass roots focus of each individual company. This balance of synergy and autonomy enables The Clarke Group to create technological and economical advantages in all our lines, ensuring the very best products, services, consultation and value.
All Clarke Group production facilities are committed to full fiber recovery. We use virtually 100% of all wood fiber entering our mills for lumber, shakes, shingles and custom chipping. Internal and external audits at every location also assure environmental compliance.
|Our Pledge to the Environment
North America's forests are what make The Clarke Group viable. So our long-term goal is maintenance of wildlife, air quality, recreation and jobs, to ensure their existence for future generations.
To achieve this, The Clarke Group of companies has taken a leadership role in the development of environmentally sound logging, forestation, soil and silvicultural practices. As a result, we've decreased forest disturbance, road building and truck traffic, while maximizing the yield of logs and minimizing waste.
The world will always depend on wood fiber building products, so we use our resources efficiently and manage our forests wisely.
This mutual co-dependence is what compels us to continue setting new environmental standards in the forest industry.
