Process & Quality

Broadleaf Lumber Quality

Quality of Lumber

Our process & quality is important, each of our lumber packages is sorted by one-foot increments. Then, we stack and sticker at one-foot increments to ensure the flattest, most consistent lumber. We air-dry down to 25%, then kiln-dry with a vacuum kiln. This process can take from 45 days to 100 days, depending on thickness and species.

  • 95% wane free (bark)
  • Every piece of KD (Kiln Dried) Lumber is manually checked for moisture content using a hand-held moisture meter before it is approved for shipment. Our target MC is 8-10% depending on the end-use and whether the destination is domestic or foreign.
