Since 1982, Rare Earth Hardwoods has been supplying the world with the finest domestic and imported lumber and wood products.
As an importer and manufacturer, Rare Earth Hardwoods endeavors to accommodate a wide variety of customer needs for wood materials and associated services. Our product line includes high quality exotic and domestic flooring, flooring accessories, inlays, specialty woods and plywood.
A continuous revolving inventory of over one-half million board feet of lumber provides material to our 60,000 square feet production facility situated on a 9 acre site near Traverse City, Michigan.
Rare Earth Hardwoods established an office in the Amazon region of Brazil in 2002. The office sits on a minimally harvested site and includes a 2,000 acre preserve of virgin forest. Our direct involvement at the source enables Rare Earth Hardwoods to better monitor the production practices of our associate mills in the region. Since opening the office in Brazil, we have been able to secure the rights to wood that would otherwise be wasted. This allows us to offer more lumber to the market without cutting additional trees.
Rare Earth Hardwoods is committed to the responsible harvesting of timber used in our products. Through continued education pertaining to the natural resource, along with innovative non-impact forestry practices, REH continues a tradition of developing methods for producing hardwood products with less impact on the environment.
