Bigfoot

Forest Lumber Mascot

Bigfoot is the youngest member of the Forest Lumber crew.  She was born on the grounds of Forest Lumber in 2012, and has called it home ever since!  She got her name because of the extra toe she has on each of her front paws, and she loves to greet and mingle with all of Forest Lumber's customers.  As long as she's in the store, there's a good chance she will come up to you and say hi!  Bigfoot always makes sure that our customer service is outstanding!

Thor

Forest Lumber Mascot

Mr. Thor joined the Forest Lumber family in 2015, and is now a staple of the store!  He enjoys walking around the yard to make sure that the lumber stacks are in order, and loves being fawned over by all of our customers.  Although some think he would make a great guard dog, his bark is bigger than his bite.  Like a true Boston Terrier, Thor is excitable, so if you need a pick-me-up, an encounter with Mr. Thor will liven up your day!
