Walker Lumber Company, Inc. procures all of its materials from legal and well managed sources, principally within Pennsylvania. We train our logging crews and associates in forest stewardship. Our talented team of foresters physically walk the woods, marking only those tress of a minimum diameter or those they deem to be detrimental to the health of the woodlot. These practices ensure that we will be able to return to the timberlands we have harvested in the past and continue to benefit from them as a productive resource in the future.

The net annual growth has been increasing for more than 50 years. There are four characteristics that make Appalachian Hardwoods stand above other hardwood lumber sources. They have: come from a sustainable forest; consistent grain patterns, color and durability; increased yield for manufactures; and been made in the United States of America.
