Veneer Log Uses
Veneer is the thin slices of wood often used to finish core panels on floors, doors, cabinets, and furniture. By peeling the trunk of the tree or slicing from large blocks of wood called flitches, wood workers can obtain thin sheets of wood around 1/8 inch or less.

In keeping with traditions of full utilization of harvested material, inferior timber falling short of the cut for quality lumber finds its own purpose as well. Pulp wood is often used for paper, but can serve as the raw material for oriented strand board (OSB) or particle board.
Our long term business plans call for the development of a log sorting and whole log chipping facility to be located in Neopit, Wisconsin. Currently, mixed hardwood and softwood species of pulpwood are available in the round form.
Wood by-products offer additional opportunities to use the whole tree harvest. Besides our quality lumber, MTE also sells the following Wood By-Products:
Chips – Wood chips from MTE can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from landscaping material to wood fuel. Wood chips are available to meet any specifications required.
- Bark – fibers from tree bark can be used to make cork, canoes, basket materials, and even healthcare applications.
- Sawdust – Sawdust is often used by loggers to provide traction on compacted snow, and is excellent at absorbing liquid spills.
- Hog Fuel – Hog fuel is a different type of wood chip; it is unprocessed and commonly used for fuel, animal feed, and landfill or landscaping applications.
- Shavings – Wood shavings make high quality bedding for horses and other domesticated mammals, large or small. The shavings insulate body heat while the animal rests, ensuring good health.
Kiln dried wood from MTE is less likely to distort, stain or warp due to the evaporation of moisture in the wood. Insects are also killed during the drying process. In order for pallet wood to be shipped internationally, kiln drying or heat treating is often required. MTE offers kiln dried wood for use in pallets and any other wood material applications.
