Sealaska Timber Company
About Sealaska Timber Company
Sealaska Timber Company (STC) operated from its headquarters in Ketchikan, Alaska, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sealaska Corporation from 1979-2021. STC was formed to develop and market the resources conveyed to Sealaska through ANCSA. On Jan. 11, 2021, Sealaska’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to transition out of its logging operations.
Sealaska Corporation, STC’s parent, owns 362,000 acres of surface land in Southeast Alaska, and STC was the dominant timber producer in the region during its existence. During its more than 35 years harvesting logs from Sealaska’s aboriginal forests, STC was a price leader on the Pacific Coast, marketing more than 3.5 billion board feet of timber during its years in operation.
STC took great pride in responsible forest management, consistent quality assurance and reliability of delivery. STC’s primary products included western hemlock, Sitka spruce, western red cedar and Alaska yellow cedar.
Long-term, strategic forest management was vital to the longevity of Sealaska Corporation and was the driving factor in STC operations. We remain committed to finding the best methods to responsibly manage our forest, fish and wildlife habitats to ensure future generations the benefit of a productive timber environment.
