Packaging & Pallet lumber

Radiata Pine lumber obtained from the central portion of logs, is used in the construction of pallets, boxes and packaging material. Products can be green or kiln-dried, and can be cut in several sizes according to customer’s needs. The rough finish prevents loads from sliding and premature wear in the pieces of the pallet that come in contact with the forklift.
