Our History

For over one hundred years, the Tindell name has been associated with wood in one form or another.  In 1892, the hills of East Tennessee provided the beginning of the family tradition when Fate Tindell began producing lumber from his steam-powered sawmill.

The father of 16 children began his sawmill by buying and cutting timber in Knox, Union and Anderson counties, moving his sawmill from one timber tract to another.  Read More
