The Forest 2 Home story
Forest 2 Home's parent company, Gutchess Lumber, has been in the lumber industry for close to 120 years. George Gutchess originally founded the company in 1904 on a small farm in upstate New York. The company has since been passed on through five generations of the Gutchess family and grown into a global lumber provider producing more than 90 million feet annually.
Over the years, we’ve developed a deep appreciation for lumber and the benefits it can bring to people’s lives. While Gutchess Lumber was formed to focus on manufacturing, we’ve built Forest 2 Home to support individual woodworkers, crafters, and DIYers across North America. We want to make premium hardwood lumber accessible and affordable while maintaining quality in everything we do. Learn more about the Forest 2 Home difference and our process here.
