About Furtado Forest Products
Furtado Forest Products is built on a strong foundation of the people that work here, our valued clients, and our beautiful, shared community.
At Furtado Forest Products, we position ourselves as a high-quality Lumber producer with exceptional customer service, located in British Columbia.
The company was founded in 2015 by Carlos Furtado after he had worked for 45 years in the Western Red Cedar industry. In 2018, Carlos’s Son Ryan joined the company as a partner. Soon after they used their combined 65 years of experience to grow the company into a name that people can trust. Furtado Forest Products is proud to be family-owned. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional customer service and putting our customers first. We focus on supplying our customers with some of the highest quality forest products available in North America.
Furtado Forest Products is proud to be members of the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association (WRCLA) and the North American Wholesale Lumber Association (NAWLA).
The WRCLA is founded in 1954. The association is a Vancouver (Canada) based non-profit association representing 27 quality producers of Western Red Cedar lumber products in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Idaho. WRCLA activities also include programs on product quality and standards as well as research and new product development. The association sits on a number of code and standard committees and works closely with FP Innovations.
The members at NAWLA are dedicated to growing and nurturing every aspect of the lumber industry, from the careful stewardship of forest resources to the harvesting and distribution of lumber products, to championing wood’s role in a greener economy and a healthier planet. Since their founding in 1893, NAWLA has been at the very heart of the industry– longer than any other lumber organization in America. They represent the best interests of wholesalers, manufacturers, and service provider companies from the planting of seedlings to the selling of building materials and wood in all of its many forms.
