El Dorado/Urbana, AR
This operation joined Canfor in 2015 following our acquisition of Anthony Forest Products and plays a key role in Canfor’s growing presence in the US South.

Historic El Dorado and nearby Urbana are located in the Timberlands region of South Arkansas. Nestled near the calm waters of the Ouachita River, this oil “boom town” of the 1920s has evolved over the years into an area rich in southern charm, history and well-known festivals. The citizens of El Dorado have made education a priority demonstrated by their school district being known for its innovation and unsurpassed financial support.
