HIGH CASCADE FOREST :: ABOUT US

High Cascade is headquartered in Carson, WA, which lies approx. 40 miles east of Portland, OR, in the middle of the Columbia River Gorge. We are the sales agent for two sawmills which include Wilkins, Kaiser & Olsen Inc. (WKO) and Mt. Hood Forest Products LLC.

WKO, located in Carson, WA. has been in business since 1962. WKO started out as a logging company, added a veneer mill in 1966 and in 1972 built its first sawmill. Today WKO operates a modern state of the art sawmill with dry kilns and a planer mill that specializes in high quality kiln dried dimension lumber and green timbers. WKO produces 130 million bd. ft. annually on a one shift basis with a specie mix of 50% douglas fir, 45% white-fir and 5% ponderosa pine.

Mt. Hood Forest Products, LLC is located approx. 12 miles south of Hood River, Oregon. The mill was acquired in 2001 and during 2004 and 2005 the mill was updated and re-tooled to become a state of the art producer of high quality green douglas fir 2X4 and 2X6 dimension lumber. Today Mt. Hood produces 100 million bd. ft. annually on a one shift basis.
