references & methodology

The introduction of this report includes metrics on the total number of sawmills that Interfor operates by region and our annual production capacity. These metrics include a sawmill in Summerville, SC that was acquired by Interfor in March 2021. Unless otherwise specified, all other metrics throughout this report relate to 2020 and therefore include the Gilchrist, OR sawmill up until the date of its sale in October 2020 and exclude the Summerville, SC sawmill acquired in 2021.
