Weyerhaeuser's Wood Products business has a long history of innovation in engineered lumber, dating back to the invention of the wood I-joist in 1960 by its Trus Joist business and the development of laminated strand lumber (LSL) and parallel strand lumber (PSL), as well as specialty solid lumber products such as Framer Series lumber.
The Natchitoches plant manufactures Trus Joist TJI joists; they resist bowing, twisting and shrinking to help create solid, quiet, high-performing floors. The plant also produces Trus Joist Microllam laminated veneer lumber (LVL), which is a strong and versatile engineered lumber product used for beams and window and door headers. The Zwolle and Emerson plants manufacture Weyerhaeuser veneer and plywood.
