Tenryu Canada's chief business, since its inception, has been the custom-cutting of various kinds of logs for lumber such as hemlock, balsam fir, yellow cedar, Douglas fir, spruce, and red cedar, featuring premium grade materials for wooden fittings, fixtures, and materials used to build shrines and temples.
We take pride in the fact that, through the experience and knowledge gained during our long history, we are manufacturing the highest quality wood products in British Columbia, Canada.
Through the wide network that we have built up over the years, Tenryu Canada deals with a broad spectrum of softwood products that range from clear material (virtually unknotted lumber) to constructional material, as well as packaging material milled from all major coastal tree species including SPF material (Spruce, Pine and Fir).
The company has also launched a tripartite trade system in which lumber is milled in an Asian country and finished products are shipped to Japan.
We export raw logs, sourced from conifer and broadleaf trees in Alaska and Canada, mainly to Japan, though in recent years there has been a trend towards an increase in the export of raw logs to Asian countries other than Japan. Products can be shipped in small lots nowadays, thanks to the use of containers.
Our hardwood products, including white birch, maple, cherry, walnut, ash, oak, etcetera, are shipped mainly from the province of British Columbia but also from the east coast of North America.
We are prepared to assist you through every step of your lumber purchase including inspections, consultations regarding size, grades, shipping arrangements, delivery procedures and so on.
