Missouri Tie purchases timber from local logging operations to supply the necessary logs for our sawmill operations.  Our main focus is to ultimately get a tie out of a log.  In that process, we also produce other lumber products that are sold in the open market.

These include:

Hardwood flooring lumber
Pallet lumber
Slab wood for charcoal

Our two sawmills are located at the same facility as the treating plant, which keeps our costs low.  Our sawmills also provide the sawdust to our treating operation.  Our treating operation is fired by a wood burning boiler system.  This system provides the necessary heat and steam for treating.  From end to end, the amount of waste from wood is an absolute minimum, and the process is very efficient.
