Wood Products

Building the Future

AbitibiBowater is a major producer of lumber and other wood products for the residential-construction and home-renovation markets, as well as for specialized structural and industrial applications. Our wood products facilities are strategically located and supported by an extensive logistics network that enables us to provide reliable, on-time deliveries to customers across the continent.

We offer a wide variety of lumber grades produced mainly from spruce, pine and fir (SPF). These species, known for their strength and light weight, are exceptional for the production of quality framing lumber. Our annual capacity of 2.2 billion board feet of lumber is enough to build more than 150,000 homes.

We also remanufacture and engineer wood to maximize its strength, creating value-added products for applications such as roofing and flooring components, as well as bed frames.


100% of the lands we manage are certified to Canadian Standards Association (CSA), Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards.


AbitibiBowater has implemented fiber tracking systems at all wood products facilities to ensure the wood fiber supply comes from acceptable sources, such as sustainably managed and certified forests and legal harvesting operations.

Natural Carbon Storage

Trees absorb and store carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. The extended service life of durable lumber and building products manufactured by AbitibiBowater prolongs the natural carbon-storing benefits provided by our forests.
