Desired for its strength and durability as well as consistent grain patterns, Appalachian Hardwood sets the standard for thousands of products and materials across the world.
With over a dozen species of hardwood available, including Red Oak, White Oak, Walnut, Poplar, Hard Maple, Soft Maple, Ash, Cherry, Basswood and Hickory, hardwood from the Appalachian region is a resource that manufacturers have learned produce the finest wooden goods.
Since the 1920s when hardwood from the Appalachian region began to make a name for itself, the term Appalachian has come to mean a consistency that is unmatched. Spanning from Georgia to New York, the Appalachian region is a temperate garden spot for hardwoods, with nutrient rich soil, idealistic year-round temperatures, and the perfect amount of moisture, allowing hardwoods to grow to their fullest potential.
Appalachian Hardwood provides you with a superior, long-lasting resource at minimal environmental risk. Modern forest management and wise utilization is at the forefront of our sustainable agenda, and our efforts have played a role in adding 300,000 forested acres to the Appalachian region. Now, more than a billion trees have been added to the region since 2007.
