Weyerhaeuser Heads West

July 01, 2010

Weyerhaeuser is expanding its presence in the Western U.S. cabinetry industry with the addition of cabinet manufacturer Huggy Bear's Cupboards. The Oregon-based company will now offer Weyerhaeuser Lyptus as a primary wood species for kitchen, bath and home office lines.

"We've incorporated Lyptus in our cabinetry to various degrees over the last three years and are excited to finally be able to promote it as one of our standard offerings," said Dwayne Hansen, president, Huggy Bear's Cupboards.  "It's a dense, beautiful and durable wood that helps us maintain a high level of craftsmanship in our cabinetry. Not to mention, it's got some great environmental features that help ensure a supply for future generations. "  

Lyptus features a fine grain and rich color. The eucalyptus trees from which it comes are ready to harvest within 14 to 16 years of planting, compared to 60 to 100 years for common temperate hardwoods. The wood is suited for a wide variety of interior applications, including cabinets, furniture, flooring and architectural millwork. It is available as high-grade lumber, veneer and flooring.
