Sustainable American Hardwoods


Are we running out of American Hardwoods? Hardly!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Department reports that hardwood growth far exceeds removal and that the resource is neither scarce nor finite. Here are the facts that outline exactly why America is not running out of hardwoods.

American Hardwoods…

The Best in the World, and here’s why:

·         Sustainably Managed—The U.S. currently has more than twice the timber resources we had in 1950.  Standing growth and self-seeding easily outrun the annual harvest every year (Source: U.S. Forest Service)!

·         Best Quality-Rigorous adherence to lumber grading practices means we never have to make due with an inferior grade or find a way to work poor lumber into a product.

·         Best Stability-Moisture content is key to long lasting wood products.  Our American lumber suppliers meticulously dry our lumber to 6-8% moisture content.  This is your most important assurance there will be limited cracks, checks and seasonal changes due to humidity.

·         Natural Beauty-Slow-growing hardwoods, milled the way we have for generations, open up a bounty of natural beauty and warmth that no imported lumber can match.

·         Millions of American Jobs—America’s plentiful forest resources provide jobs now, and into the distant future, harvesting trees and converting them for diverse markets such as Construction, Paper, Packaging and Wood Products.
