Moore Newton boasts a tremendous on-the-ground inventory of the most sought-after domestic and exotic hardwoods, all available in 4/4 through 12/4 thicknesses. Most stock is in the rough, with unit-quantities on the ground and ready for next-day delivery.
We maintain a mixture of lengths and widths, as well as width sorts, allowing us to provide a spectrum of dimensions and fulfill stock-to-make orders for particular widths and lengths.
We also maintain an inventory of surfaced and dimensional lumber in most species:
- surfaced and straightlined to 13/16″
- surfaced and straight-lined to 1-3/4″
- dimensional S4S stock, in 1×2 through 1×12
We purchase our lumber in the highest grades available for each given specie, typically FAS1F (firsts and seconds) or S&B (select & better). Particularly grade-subjective species, such as Cherry and Walnut, are stocked in proprietary grades, often sorted for color and heart content.
We have worked tirelessly to develop a hardwood lumber inventory of exceptional grade and appearance. Every container of lumber is checked for quality and appearance, and our full-time NHLA grader ensures that all of our products meet or exceed the grades they are sold under.
In addition to high-grade lumber, Moore Newton also provides “character” grades for rustic and distressed applications, and common grades for smaller cuttings at a more cost effective price.
Moore Newton only purchases material from mills and manufacturers that demonstrate and practice sustainable forestry practices.
All of our lumber mills are FSC® certified, meaning that our customers don’t have to question the integrity of the material they use.
Most of our lumber mills take part in local sustainable forest initiatives and independently certify their forests as sustainable; often having operated for generations, most hardwood lumber mills in the United States have carefully managed their forests over the last century to ensure the lasting operations of their facilities, often demonstrating increased biomass and healthier forests than ever before.
The American hardwood forestry industry has made tremendous strides in creating well managed forests that will flourish and continue to provide hardwood forest products for generations to come.
