Trailblazer Hardwood B-S KD Lumber

Specification Sheet #6231 - Trailblazer Mixed Hardwoods Millwork Stock

Introduction

When the first settlers moved into new regions of our expanding nation, they cleared small plots of ground for subsistence farming and used the felled trees for logs and timbers to construct homes for themselves and barns for their livestock. Because these resourceful settlers had to use what was available to them, they often did not discriminate among wood species--if the trees they felled were solid and durable they were used in the needed structures. It is in that same spirit of resourcefulness, economy and good stewardship that Trestlewood offers
Trailblazer Mixed Hardwoods Millwork Stock. Rest assured that the material you purchase will be the same mix of hearty North American species as was used by our great, great grandfathers more than a century ago.
