Marshfield, MA – D.H. Smith & Sons, a company which provides wood waste cycling, land clearing, mulch manufacturing, power equipment and retail landscape supplies and which serves both the wholesale and retail markets, has further expanded its operations with the relocation of its headquarters to 887 Plain Street, Route 139, Marshfield.
Dan Smith Jr., who founded the company in 1997, says the Marshfield location, the site of the former Copeland Lumber Company on Route 139, seemed the perfect solution for their needs when it became clear that they had outgrown the space at their Pembroke location. They first used the site for several years to manufacture mulch and then made the decision to build their new company headquarters there as well.
Smith and his team oversaw the design and construction of two buildings totaling 25,000sf, sited on the 16 acre parcel of land. In the last few years, the company has greatly expanded its offerings and now provides services to both the wholesale and retail markets.
One of the company’s signature endeavors is its wood waste recycling, which began in 2015 but has greatly expanded in the last year. D.H. Smith & Sons takes in stumps, logs, brush, woodchips and other material from the forest, from contractors, and then processes the materials through grinding, seasoning and color enhancing. Some of the logs which are brought in are sold to saw mills; the wood chips and grindings are made into premium mulch products, loam, and wood chips. D.H. Smith & Sons has the onsite equipment to process all of the wood products right at their Marshfield location. Dan Smith sees their location as ideal for contractors, landscapers, and residential tree service companies who are in need of a convenient location to dispose of and recycle their wood waste and compost.
In addition to taking in materials from contractors, the company also offers full land clearing and forestry services.
While the initial focus of D.H. Smith & Sons was the wholesale market, the company has added a retail component to their business with its power equipment sales and service division.
