We are an industrial logging contractor that buys marketable timber stands from farms and hunting properties.


Walnut Timber Buyers is one of the Illinois premiere harvesters of high-grade hardwood trees. We specialize in walnut and white oak and are able to export high-grade veneer, table tops, and sawlogs.  

As a family-owned company, we understand the value of good working relationships. That is why we consistently strive to create long-lasting business partnerships which are mutually beneficial to all parties involved. Of course, our goal extends not only to the landowners and loggers we work with, but to importers as well.

At Walnut Timber Buyers our goal is to make purchasing logs from us as simple as possible. In order to achieve this goal, we have invested in streamlining our logistics from the yard to the rail. We provide container loading services at our professionally managed concentration yards and we are able to arrange trucking, fumigation, and rail services. 

Walnut Timber Buyers is always searching for importers to partner with. Email us today for more information or to set up a time to visit one of our concentration yards.
