For builders and distributors alike, we produce a wide array of lumber products at our mills in Arkansas, Idaho, Minnesota and Michigan with a focus on product reliability and a dedication to customer service. In Arkansas we make lumber from Southern yellow pine. Our Idaho mill produces lumber from several species.
