"Growing into the Future"


Seaboard Timber Company, Inc.
is a family-owned and operated company located in eastern North Carolina.  We have been in the timber harvesting business
for over 45 years.

Seaboard Timber Company was the first company in the country to do it
---buy its own timber, debark and chip hardwood on site, deliver the
finished clean hardwood chips to the mill and supervise the reforestation of
the landowner's land.

At Seaboard Timber, we are concerned for the future of  our children and for the generations that will follow.  Therefore, we are always in search of new and better ways to manage our natural resources.

  We utilize the most modern
advances in  harvest equipment:
  • a Track Feller Buncher minimizes the disturbance of the underlying soil base
  • a shovel machine allows the tractors to run on a bridge of wood, minimizing rutting of the soil
  • our Morbark 2755 Total Chiparvestor produces a clean pine or hardwood chip
  • timber is harvested, bark is removed, and the clean wood is chipped right on site--all in one smooth, time-efficient operation
