The distinction between hardwood and softwood actually has to do with plant reproduction. All trees reproduce by producing seeds, but the seed structure varies. Hardwood trees are angiosperms, plants that produce seeds with some sort of covering. This might be a fruit, such as an apple, or a hard shell, such as an acorn.
At Sterritt Lumber, our wide selection of FSC certified hardwoods include poplar, oak, maple, and cherry. These fine materials can be used in residential and commercial construction, flooring, furniture-making, and boat-building. Another fine aspect of Sterritt Lumber’s handling of hardwoods is the capability to special order more hard to find hardwood species. If it is out there, Sterritt Lumber can find it for you and in the process, satisfy all of your building materials needs!
