Hancock Lumber takes great pride in its product and our ‘Every Board Counts’ pledge ensures that we are delivering a product that meets or exceeds our customers’ expectations…every time.
- Hancock Lumber’s commitment to responsible forestry has served as its foundation, enabling the company to carry on its stewardship mission of leaving things in better shape than when they assumed responsibility for them. At the heart of their past, present and future is the Eastern White Pine tree.
- 100 years is the average length of time to grow an Eastern White Pine tree to maturity. In Hancock Lumber’s nearly 175-year history, only two harvest cycles have been completed.
- Hancock sawmills are zero waste facilities, utilizing every part of each log harvested. From boards for building, to chips for playgrounds and sawdust as alternative fuel that helps power its mills. We even generate our own power with a back pressure turbine generator at the Bethel mill that converts otherwise wasted steam from the kilns into energy!
