Harvesting quality Minnesota grown specialty forest products is a family affair. Brothers Sean Timonen, owner of Black Spruce Holdings, LLC, and David, owner of Timonen Forest Products, LLC, along with their father Wayne have been in business since 2001. Their respective operations have grown significantly over the years and they now service an expanded account base of Midwest businesses in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois. Account retention has been an overriding focus. In the beginning, buyers were landscapers and local garden centers. Today, buyers include regional commercial flower growers for national retail chains that incorporate the family's harvested products into decorative potted arrangements. The Timonen family prides itself in delivering high customer satisfaction whether it's neighbors decorating the front porch to large commercial businesses receiving their products by the semi-trailer load.
