Softwood Lumber

Softwoods come from seed-producing trees that include conifers like Pine, Fir, and Spruce. They're are not necessarily softer than hardwoods. Softwoods are generally most used by the construction industry and are also used to produce paper pulp, and card products.

Through the acquisition of Fort Worth fixture Trinity Forest Industries, Central Hardwoods has become Dallas-Fort Worth's premier source for Ponderosa Pine, Sugar Pine, and other fine softwoods.

With a large variety of grades and features our softwoods are ideal for retail lumber yards, home centers, window and door companies, furniture and fixture manufacturers, cabinet shops, toy and craft makers.
