Sugar Pine and select Construction Heart Redwood lumber. We also

Fir, as well as 3-inch and 4-inch thick #1 Douglas Fir.
Softwood Lumber: Upper Grades
Southern Lumber has the largest and deepest selection of "upper"

have helped establish one of the finest in-stock collections of
Clear Sugar Pine, Vertical-Grain Douglas Fir, and Clear, All-Heart
Redwood in a variety of sizes and thicknesses.
Hardwoods from Around the World
When Ed Pohle purchased Southern Lumber in the early 1930's, he
transformed the company from selling timbers to selling fine
lumber, including the introduction of fine hardwoods to the
woodworkers and craftsmen of the Santa Clara Valley. Today,
Southern Lumber stocks over 50 species of hardwoods, with most
species available clean, surfaced and free of defects.
