Business Segments Description

Northern Resources Segment 

Logs harvested in the Northern Resources Segment are sold predominately to domestic mills. To a lesser extent, the company exports logs to Canada and to other countries of the Pacific Rim. Competitors in the domestic log market include the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, and numerous private individuals, domestic and foreign industrial timberland owners, and state agencies located in the regions in which we operate. Competitors in export log markets include numerous private timberland owners in the United States, as well as companies and state-controlled enterprises in Canada, Chile, New Zealand, and Russia, all of which have abundant timber resources. In the Northern Resources Segment, domestic wood and fiber consuming facilities tend to purchase raw materials within a 200-mile radius due to transportation costs. Competitive factors within a market area generally will include price, species and grade, quality, proximity to wood consuming facilities and the ability to consistently meet customer requirements. We compete based on our reputation as a stable and consistent supplier of well-merchandised, high-quality logs, and on price.

Southern Resources Segment 

Logs in the Southern Resources Segment are sold to third party mills producing a wide array of forest products, including manufacturers of lumber, plywood, oriented strand board, and pulp and paper products. We compete with numerous private and industrial timberland owners, as well as federal and state agencies, across the Southern United States. Due to transportation costs, domestic wood and fiber consuming facilities in the Southern Resources Segment tend to purchase raw material within a 100-mile radius. Competitive factors within our Southern Resources Segment include price, species, grade, quality, proximity to wood consuming facilities and the ability to consistently meet customer requirements. We compete based on our reputation as a stable and consistent supplier of well-merchandised, high-quality logs, and on price.

Real Estate Segment 

We estimate that included in the company’s 8.1 million acres of timberlands are 1.35 million acres of higher and better use timberlands and 1.4 million acres of non-strategic timberlands. The higher and better use timberlands are expected to be sold over the next 15 years for conservation, residential or recreational purposes. Approximately half of the non-strategic timberlands are expected to be sold in large blocks over the next two years. The other half of the non-strategic timberlands, which is generally in smaller tracts, is expected to be sold over the next five to ten years. In the meantime, these timberlands continue to be used productively in our business of growing and selling timber.

Manufactured Products Segment 

Lumber. We produce a diverse line of softwood lumber products, including common and select boards, studs, edge-glued boards and finger-jointed studs. Lumber products manufactured in our two studmills, two random-length board mills, and remanufacturing facility in western Montana, along with our remanufacturing facility in Idaho, are targeted to domestic lumber retailers, such as retail home centers, for use in repair and remodeling projects. These products are also sold to stocking distributors for use in home construction.

Plywood. Our two plywood plants in western Montana produce high-grade softwood plywood that we sell primarily into domestic specialized industrial markets, including boat, recreational vehicle, transportation and concrete forming applications. Our plywood products are generally of higher quality than commodity construction grade products and generally command higher prices in these specialty markets. While some plywood products are sold directly to large industrial customers, the majority is sold via stocking wholesale distributors. We also export 5 to 10% of our plywood to Canada.

Medium Density Fiberboard. In October of 2001, we commenced operation of a new $80 million thin-board production facility adjacent to our existing medium density fiberboard (“MDF”) facility in western Montana.

Other Segment—Natural Resources 

As part of our natural resources business, we focus on realizing the maximum value potential of our extensive property ownership, including opportunities relating to mineral extraction, natural gas production, water rights and communication and transportation rights of way. This segment represents a diverse array of natural resource products and markets subject to widely varying forms and levels of competition. Our strategy, in part, involves forming strategic alliances with industry specific leaders to identify and pursue such opportunities, as well as securing participation rights in select development projects.
