Used for all types of woodworking, cabinetmaking, and flooring applications, Cherry lumber is one of the most prized American hardwoods. The best cherry logs come from the Pennsylvania area due to the soil, climate, and forest makeup of this area. We source our Cherry lumber from mills located in the Pennsylvania area.
Cherry color starts as a pink salmon and will naturally redden with age and exposure to sunlight. Sapwood in cherry is white in color. Cherry is available in plainsawn, quartersawn, and figured curly cherry.
