Aspen Wood Products and our sister company Aspen Wall Wood are experts at sustainably harvesting Aspen wood and producing natural, high-quality products. Aspen Wall Wood, based in Dolores, Colorado, has earned a solid reputation for quality paneling and lumber since the mid-’70s. The company started with pinewood products and transitioned to harvesting Aspen in the ’80s. Since that time, Aspen has been the preferred wood for Aspen Wall Wood.
In 2018, a year after the Western Excelsior plant burned down in Mancos, Colorado, Aspen Wall Wood bought the business and 35-acre property. After salvaging and restoring much of the former mill’s equipment, we built a new warehouse and rehired many of the plant’s experienced employees, adding to the employment base in the small local community.
Today, Aspen Wood Products continues the 40+ year history of Aspen Wall Wood, providing superior products, environmental preservation and unrivaled customer service.
TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Aspen excelsior has been produced in this region since the 1950s. Our pledge to help sustain the pristine beauty of the Rocky Mountains and our national forests shows our commitment to continue to preserve the environment.
We use timber that has been sustainably harvested from Colorado’s San Juan National Forest. Our harvesting process follows logging guidelines created specifically to minimize the possibility of wildfires in the forest and mountain regions of western Colorado. In addition to wildfire mitigation, the logging programs are part of an overall forestry plan to revitalize the Aspen forest and reduce the carbon footprint.
