Hardwood Lumber - Hickory

Central Hardwoods maintains one of the largrest and most diverse hardwood inventories in the south west. We maintain stock of upper-grade hardwoods, selected according to their grain and color characteristics.



A very dense wood, known for its high toughness. Hickory also has high bending strength, great stiffness, and exceptional resistance to shock. Usually straight-grained, Hickory is often used for handles in striking tools such as hammers and axes.


Heartwood tends to be light to medium brown, with a reddish hue; sapwood is a paler yellowish brown.
