Supporting these operations is Seneca Jones Timber Company which sustainably manages 167,000 acres of timberlands that produce raw material for our sawmills. Our newest facility, Seneca Sustainable Energy, utilizes byproducts from our forest and sawmill operations and produces 19.8 MW of renewable power which is utilized by our local community (enough for 13,000 homes on an annual basis), plus steam for our onsite dry kilns.
