Summer is harvest time for BarkClad Natural Bark Siding

Summer is harvest time for BarkClad Natural Bark Siding

Summer is the busiest time of the year for BarkClad. During a few short weeks, the BarkClad crew heads into the woods to harvest its signature all-natural bark siding.

Working with loggers who are cutting poplar timber for the furniture and plywood industries, BarkClad harvests its bark only from already-felled trees, saving what otherwise would go to waste to create a beautiful natural siding product.

The poplar bark is hand-peeled and cut at the tree harvest site, then carefully carried, not pulled or dragged, to a pallet where it is stacked flat for drying. This “hands-on” process minimizes damage and maintains the natural integrity of the bark.

Back at the mill the bark is placed in a kiln where it is dried slowly at a constant heat, a process that also destroys any insects, eggs, larvae and fungi that may be present. Once drying is complete, the bark siding is cut to specification and ready to ship.

It’s a painstaking process, and not much different than the technique used by mountain residents centuries ago.

Tradition is important at BarkClad. For 15 years, the western North Carolina company has built a reputation on providing the highest-quality natural bark siding and building products and exceptional customer service. The company’s distinctive bark is found on the exteriors and interiors of fine rustic homes and lodges, lake cabins, seaside cottages, and natural commercial properties across North America.
