Independent Stave Company (ISCO) has closed on 8,016 forested acres in the Southcentral region of Kentucky, near the town of Somerset. The land was purchased for its abundance of mature stave quality oak logs. Over the next several years, ISCO Log Procurement will work with local loggers to sustainably harvest wood from the land to supply the company’s stave mill facilities in Kentucky and the adjacent states.
At KFIA (Kentucky Forest Industries Association) convention in Central City, KY ISCO Log Procurement donated a barrel to the silent auction benefiting Log A Load for Kids, Inc – United States.
Our Log Procurement Manager, Garret Nowell, recently participated in a New Pioneers Moving Forward Forum on sustainable practices in the bourbon industry. Watch starting at 16 minutes for his talk.
