Baars, Dunwody & Company was a lumber exporting company founded by Henry Baars and his brother-in-law Brian Dunwody.

At the turn of the twentieth century it was one of the world's largest exporters of pitch pine timber, controlling the output of approximately fifty lumber manufacturers in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, with foreign interests represented throughout Europe.[1]

Several of the firm's members were stockholders and directors in the American National Bank and were active in the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce and Young Men's Business League.[1]
