A FOCUS ONSustainability & Harvesting
Sustainable harvesting is important to maintaining healthy white oak forests. Responsible logging removes mature white oak trees which opens up the canopy and promotes new growth and regeneration. These practices help to ensure healthy forests for future generations.
With our proprietary technologies, we are able to utilize nearly 100% of the logs we harvest for staves. Material that cannot be used for staves is converted into a variety of natural products such as chips, mulch, and sawdust.
Founded by T.W. Boswell, our first mill, located in the Mark Twain National Forest, was dedicated to crafting white oak staves.
After prohibition was repealed, ISC focused on being a premier stave mill before opening a cooperage in Lebanon, Missouri.
ISC acquired a cooperage in Lebanon, Kentucky to meet a growing demand for barrels.
The fourth generation of Boswells continue to grow ISC's presence around the world.
