With a vast inventory of wholesale lumber and our own fleet of trucks, we provide superior turnaround time and can deliver lumber as fast as the next day.

Spruce-Pine-Fir, or SPF lumber, refers to a segment of softwoods used mainly to make dimensional lumber for home building and panels. Although there are eastern and western varieties of SPF lumber, we tend to use the Eastern SPF lumber for their favorable freight costs. In the wood packaging industry, we deal with the lower grades of SPF lumber that are, generally, not used in home building. Market prices for industrial SPF lumber grades are influenced by housing markets and China’s purchases. SPF lumber is ideal for many uses because it is light, with moderate strength, is worked easily, takes paint readily and holds nails well.  We use SPF lumber in many of our wood packaging designs because it is abundant, affordable, kiln dried, and heat treated.

Timber Creek maintains an excellent relationship with several hardwood mills throughout the country. We are also unique in the fact that we own two of our own hardwood lumber sawmills in Cavour, Wisconsin and Antigo, Wisconsin. We carry a large inventory of wholesale hardwood lumber in most common hardwood dimensions used in industrial packaging applications. We stock or produce stringer stock in 4/4, 5/4, and 6/4 inch thicknesses in various lengths. And we manufacture 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, and 4/4 inch deck and bottom boards in 3 to 8 inch widths and various lengths. Because we own our own hardwood lumber sawmills, we can acquire logs of various species and cut precisely the material and dimension your spec requires. We custom cut 7/8 inch square cleats up to 12 x 12 inch timbers made to order. We have heat treat chambers at our Milwaukee, Newton, Antigo, Dyer, and Tonawanda facilities so we can heat treat any hardwood lumber and stamp it to meet ISPM 15 regulations.
Our rail siding at our Milwaukee facility allows us to bring in rail cars of softwood SPF lumber from Canada. We also bring in southern yellow pine out of the south depending on the market. We inventory 1×4 inch through 1×12 inch SPF boards from 8 to 16 feet. We stock 2×4 inch through 2×12 inch lengths of SPF lumber from 8 to 24 feet. We also carry 4×4, 4×6, and 4×8 inch softwood lumber in 8 to 16 foot lengths, longer lengths may require more lead time. Our softwood stock is heat treated and kiln dried to meet ISPM 15 regulations. Grades we stock include non-grade, economy, #3, and #2 and better. Much of our wholesale lumber stock is spruce lumber, pine lumber, fir lumber, and southern yellow pine lumber.
If you have an application that requires engineered lumber, Timber Creek is your best bet for Parallel Strand Lumber (PSL) or Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). PSL can be milled to any dimension from 1×2 inch up to 2×12 inch. We stock many varieties of PSL for our customers, but our inventory varies greatly from time to time. Call with your special requirement and we will source and respond within 24 hours.
Since the implementation of ISPM 15 regulations, there have been changes requiring hardwood or softwood blocking used as dunnage be marked according to international standards. If you use hardwood lumber or softwood lumber inside shipping containers, crates, or boxes that ship internationally, this material must be independently treated and marked. We are audited monthly by Timber Products Inspection to verify that our dunnage stamped material is compliant with the ISPM 15 heat treatment, debarking, and marking requirements mandatory at your product’s port destination. Our expertise can help you avoid costly mistakes and delays in your shipments due to non-conformance with ISPM 15 regulations.
