Today, people are more concerned than ever about the environmental and safety implications of the products they buy. As one of the nation's oldest wood preserving companies, we do more than share this concern. We also do our best to ensure the environmental and human compatibility with every one of our processes.

We take our environmental and safety responsibilities seriously. Our Environmental and Safety Dept. is devoted exclusively to meeting those responsibilities. Its goal is to ensure compliance with all employee safety and environmental regulations. But more importantly, we feel more than just a legal responsibility. We also recognize the long-term value - and wisdom - of acting responsibly within our community and ecosystem.


We are proud stewards of our company's precious natural resources. Our own company timberlands have been meticulously cared for by four generations of Baxters' resulting in a sustainable resource.
