The Seneca Family of Companies has grown from a small sawmill operation founded by Aaron U. Jones  in 1954 to a multi-company family consisting of Seneca Sawmill, Seneca Jones Timber Company, Seneca Noti and Seneca Sustainable Energy. Today Aaron’s daughters, Becky, Kathy and Jody Jones are the new owners of the Seneca Family of Companies as the growth and development of our products transcends to the second generation of the Jones family.

From humble roots, producing just 18 million board feet of lumber in 1954, today Seneca Sawmill currently includes three mills in Eugene and one at Noti, with production levels exceeding 650 million board feet. This accomplishment is through dedicated and proud teamwork, coupled with demand for excellence in every step of production.  Aided by the timber managed by Seneca Jones Timber Company and steam for dry kilns produced from the Seneca Sustainable Energy facility,  Seneca continues to be one of the largest-producing mills on one site in the United States.
