Buchanan Hardwoods is a major supplier of hardwood products to various markets worldwide. Our red and white oak lumber is well known for its quality and consistency, and it's used in a variety of manufacturing industries.


What Makes Us Different

Our supply of native oak, ash, and other hardwoods, and our strategically-located sawmill, ensure a consistent flow of product to our customers, large and small.

We source hardwood timber for lumber and flooring production from the Tombigbee River Basin to the Appalachian Mountains. The large size of this timber harvesting area assures you that we can fulfill your requirements.

Consistent quality has been the key to Buchanan's success over the years. All export and domestic lumber is carefully inspected and measured after kiln drying. Painted ends, package tallies, heavy-duty straps, and stiffeners are standard for each container or truck loading.  All containers are stuffed by Buchanan personnel at the company's yards.

Whether you need a multi-car order in North Carolina, or a single truckload to California, or containerized shipments to Europe, Asia, Middle East, Central & South America as well as Africa,  Buchanan has the size and versatility to handle your needs promptly.

You deserve a leader in the industry.
