Jacob Jürgensen can look back on more than 50 years of experience in the sale of North American hardwood timbers.

Vast stands of hardwood forests with tremendous diversity of species and, depending on the growing area, with special properties and varying qualities can be found in the USA and Canada. These natural resources have given rise to a broad range of sawmills and woodworking industries with varying focus, depending on the region where they are located.

Over the course of many decades, Jacob Jürgensen has worked to develop a high level of competence and an excellent reputation in North America. These two elements are fundamental prerequisites for successful, sustainable activities in an atmosphere of trust in this sector.

We collaborate with well-known and highly skilled producers such as Gilco International, West Virginia, and ITL, Ohio, who manage their own forests and sawmills.

The sawn timber is graded according to the familiar export regulations, kiln dried and packed to length. Our works can also provide timber sorted according to width, fixed widths, or cut-to-size dimensions.

Our primary hardwoods

  • White oak (Quercus alba)
  • Tulipwood/yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera)
  • White ash (Fraxinus Americana)
  • Black walnut (Juglans nigra)
  • Black cherry (Prunus serotina)
  • Hard maple (Acer saccharum)
  • Canadian/yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis)

We cooperate with suppliers in the best growing areas of North America. This long-standing cooperation, marked by a sense of trust, is what enables us to ensure the high level of quality and service in the procurement of round logs.

We will be glad to advise you in the procurement of veneer logs or sawlogs. We can arrange visits to our partner companies in the harvesting areas or on the logyards.
