Glacier Hardwoods exclusively sells hardwood lumber. What is a hardwood? A hardwood is defined by its leaf form; specifically timber from broad-leafed and deciduous trees. The term does not infer hardness – it is a classification. Generally the timber from hardwoods is heavier and harder than from conifer (needle-leaved) trees but there are many exceptions. Some of the lightest weight and softest woods are hardwoods! Balsa, a wood that is soft and lightweight, is a hardwood.

Grades of hardwoods are established by the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) grading rules. These grades relate to the number of standard defects acceptable per given grade and dictate minimum widths and lengths. Glacier Hardwoods stocks most grades of lumber and, if it is not in stock, we will gladly source what you need.
