Tenakee Logging Company

Specializing in selectively harvested Alaskan lumber.

Welcome! We're a father and son-owned small milling company based in Tenakee Springs, Alaska devoted to environmentally sustainable harvesting.

We primarily work in and around the Tenakee Springs area, including Juneau and Sitka, providing our customers with rough sawn, finely grained lumber from trees including Sitka Spruce, Western Hemlock and Yellow Cedar.

We're proud to provide our customers with Alaskan-made products and to help support the local Southeastern Alaskan economy. Learn more about us, our process, our products, and how we can help you!
