poplar | EAST

Rarely used for its aesthetics, Poplar is a common utility wood with various usages and economically priced.

EASTERN White Pine | EAST

Clear pine is more commonly used for millwork and furniture; however, knotty pine is more commonly used for construction lumber. EWP is noted for being easy to work with and its uniform texture, which lends itself well for machinability, adhesion, and stainability. Light in color, EWP ranges from light yellow or cream to a very light brown with dark knots.

WHITE OAK | EAST

A tough, dense wood, White Oak is one of the A tough, dense wood, White Oak is one of the strongest native hardwoods in the United States. Because of its durability and lighter color highlighted by a distinctive darker grain pattern, White Oak is often used for furniture, cabinetry, and barrels. Due to its naturally impervious and decay-resistant nature, White Oak has traditionally been used for a wide range of applications, ranging from fences and flooring to barrels and bridges.

RED OAK | EAST

Red oak shares a lot of similar characteristics with white oak, but with two main differences: it’s reddish hue and porous nature.

Log Sourcing

Forest management is becoming more and more important this day in age as population growth continues to increase along with dryer summers year after year. Strategic forest procurement and thinning has become more vital in our day in age. In the past decade, we have seen some of the worst forest fires on record.

Proper forest care, stewardship, and replantation ensure that we secure a sustainable lumber supply and prevent the destruction of forests from fire, bugs, and overpopulation.

Did you know that harvesting actually benefits our forests? Especially in the dry west, forest fires rage during the summer — destroying the habitat of animals and polluting the air (from coast to coast) with smoke. Thinning forests helps prevent forest fires from burning quicker than firefighters can control.
