For more than 100 years, we've developed sustainable ways to grow and harvest trees in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. We're also a leader in applying technology and innovation to trees to solve problems and create leading edge products. Our Yew trees provide the chemical paclitaxel, an FDA-approved chemotherapy drug used to treat cancer. Our wood pulp is a substitute for petroleum-based textiles in making fabrics. We've even been working on a way to transform plants and wood fiber into clean-burning biofuels for cars and trucks.
Of course, many of our products meet more traditional needs for forest products like building products for homes and paper for communication. We invite you to browse our products by category and discover how Weyerhaeuser is releasing the potential in trees to solve important problems for people and the planet.
