Our Lumber Species

The purpose of this section is to provide designers, architects, specifiers and users with the generic species information needed for a range of applications in furniture, joinery, flooring, doors and interiors. This information can also be obtained in hardcopy by ordering AHEC’s “Guide to American Hardwood Species”.

Information on lumber grades can be found here. The US industry also produces and exports American Hardwood veneer, plywood, flooring, dimension stock, furniture parts and mouldings. Information on these is published in AHEC’s “Guide to American Hardwood Products” brochure in conjunction with the species publication.
