A Private, Family Owned Company
A Message From the Chairman of ATI
Thank you for your interest in our Company. As you
browse through this web site, you’ll find Anthony
Timberlands, Inc. (ATI) has much to offer your wood
From the beginning of Mr. Garland Anthony’s lumber
operations in 1907, he and his partners eventually
operated many mills, acquiring timberlands which became
the foundation for today’s Anthony Timberlands, Inc.
From our headquarters in Bearden, Arkansas - only three
miles from the location of the original mill - ATI owns
and manages sawmills, timberlands and other wood
products businesses across south Arkansas.
Though Mr. Garland died in 1982, at the age of 97, his
spirit lives on in his sons, daughters, grandsons, and
even one great grandson who make up the management of
ATI. Indeed, my grandchildren make the seventh
generation to work and live in these forests.
We’re timber people. We know the business well. We
have assembled a team of experts in forest management,
production, marketing and other necessary facets of our
industry to enable us to offer you the highest quality
untreated or treated pine and hardwood lumber at
competitive prices. However, the principles guiding
our company are different from most other forest product
manufacturers. The owners and managers of ATI live and
work on the land where we grow, harvest and manufacture
our forest products. We live and are active in the
communities where our plants are located. We not only
know the forest, we know the people who draw from it
We believe the seven generations of heritage invested in
our lands, plants and communities require a higher
standard than simply operating for a profit. Each
succeeding generation is challenged to leave a better
forest and a better company than when they arrived.
To accomplish this means that we must make sure and
protect the forest base, fully utilizing the product of
the land by converting this valuable yet renewing
resource into its highest and best use. Nothing
grieves us more than seeing high quality trees turned
into low quality products, or seeing fine timber
processed over obsolete equipment using little or poor
technology, yielding inferior or mis-manufactured
products and excessive waste. Thus, our commitment is
to use state-of-the-art technology and equipment at all
My grandfather made the Anthony name synonymous with
quality wood products. At ATI, we’re dedicated to not
only preserving, but also building upon and expanding
this tradition of excellence into the future.
John E. Anthony, Chairman
Anthony Timberlands, Inc.
