Bark House

Selling Tulip Poplar Bark Shingles & Panels to Bark House

Poplar bark peels only in the summer.  Most years the bark is accepted from May through the end of July, but the season has begun as early as mid-April and ended as late as late-August.  Call the Yard Manager if you are coming in on one of the early-start or late-end months to ensure we are prepared to receive your material.  All new vendors are required to talk to our yard manager before attempting to sell the bark to us for the first time.  This is a precaution we offer for your benefit, more than our benefit.

All vendors are required to fill out the following forms and provide the following information:

  1. W-9.  If we do not have a valid W-9 on file, all checks will have 28% deducted from the total as required by Federal law
  2. Vendor Due Diligence Form.  We will request &/or examine one or more of the following:
    1. Tax maps/GIS maps to determine property ownership
    2. Timber contracts
    3. Notarized permission forms from property owners for tracts not owned by Vendor
    4. What is the disposition of the logs?
  3. We periodically field visit peeling sites for auditing purposes
  4. Provide a copy of your Forestry Training or Pro Logger Certification if you have one

Feel free to print the above forms and complete them before you come.
