We produce Basswood in 5/4 and 8/4 standard thicknesses, and it is packaged in face and better, #1 common, and #2 common grades.
American Basswood grows throughout the Great Lakes region of the United States in mixed hardwood forests on sites with acidic soils, but our Basswood comes from within about 100 miles (62 km) of our manufacturing facilities. A common hardwood in our local forests, the species is rated by NatureServe as secure in its conservation status.
The light density of basswood makes it well suited for wooden-ware, crates, blinds, and internal furniture parts. Easy to work with hand tools, it is often used for wooden carving. In mouldings and many other applications, it can be used as a substitute for aspen or poplar. Native Americans made ropes from the long tough fibers of its bark, and a fantastic array of medicinal uses are reported in its history.
