Home to over 17-million acres of forest land, Pennsylvania has the most valuable hardwood resource in the United States.

The northern hardwoods forest type dominates the landscape of northwest and north-central PA, providing an abundance of world famous Black Cherry. Red and White Oak, Ash, Hickory, Hard and Soft Maple, Poplar and Walnut are all prevalent throughout the state. With three locations in Pennsylvania, the sawmills of Bingaman & Son Lumber, Inc. are uniquely poised to offer a vast array of top-quality PA hardwood species and products to their customers.

 A few facts to consider:

  • Pennsylvania is the largest producer of hardwoods in the country, accounting for over 10% of the total hardwood output of the US.
  • Annual volume growth in PA forests is more than twice the volume harvested to support Pennsylvania’s forest-products industry. The current sawtimber volume in PA is the highest recorded since the inception of the U.S. Forest Service inventory. In fact, sawtimber volume has increased nearly 20 percent since 1989. 
  • The PA hardwood industry produces about $5.5 billion worth of products annually and is one of the state’s largest manufacturing industries.  
  • The majority of PA’s forests, about 70%, are privately owned, with only 5% being held by forest products companies. Approximately 30% of the forests are government owned, including the nearly 500,000-acre Allegheny National Forest.
