NORTH AMERICAN HARDWOODS

The United States are blessed with an abundance of natural forest lands that have been managed for commercial and non-commercial use since the 1800s. The hardwood forests of the eastern half of the country contain a wide range of temperate species, many of which are readily available as lumber and dimension products to domestic and overseas customers.
