Deer Park Lumber: future plans and past accomplishments

Deer Park Lumber specializes in high quality kiln dried Northern Appalachian Hardwood. Cherry, Red Oak, Hard Maple and Ash are just a few examples of what they currently offer. They focus on lumber products and forestry services including forest management. One of their main goals is to always be improving to keep up with changes in the market. Once again, they are making efforts this year to stay competitive.


Future Plans

“We are doubling the size of our grade line,” states Joe Zona of Deer Park Lumber, “We will have capacity to do more sorting when needed. Also, we are installing a Vision Tally system. This will improve our efficiency and give very accurate lumber tallies to our customers. Construction on the project is due to be complete mid to late April.”

Past Accomplishments

What is particularly unique about Deer Park Lumber is that you don’t have to look very hard to see that they highly value giving back to the community, promoting the industry at large, and making a great place to work. Here is a short list of some of their recent happenings:

  • They recently sponsored and organized the 1st Annual Alift Golf Tournament. Proceeds benefited loggers (and their families) who suffered injuries in the field. Last spring, they supported the PFPA Log a Load for Kids pheasant hunt to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in Pennsylvania.
  • They are involved with local schools and have been able to promote the forest products industry to young students.
  • Recently, the Miss Teen PA United States Agriculture visited and toured the Deer Park Lumber facility.
  • Deer Park Lumber also gives back to their very valued employee family. They have regular employee appreciation day festivities that are always well received!
