SpruceLumber

The standard predominant species for construction across North America (spruce, pine, and fir species from all regions of Canada) are grouped as “SPF”. Known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, competitive cost, and universal availability in a wide range of dimensions, SPF is a natural choice for both light framing and heavy timber construction, as well as a wide range of applications in between.

Overall, SPF has a vast range of applications from general construction, framing, packaging, shoring, and earthwork applications, to pressure-treating timbers for commercial projects.  SPF is the workhorse of general applications, and grading under the National Lumber Grades Authority rules assure consistent quality regardless of the application.

Features:

  • Sourced from sustainably managed forests
  • Every piece meets the highest grading standards under the National Lumber Grades Authority (NLGA)
  • Known for its durability, high strength-to-weight ratio and appearance
  • Cost-effective
  • Versatility of application and end use
