Our veneer logs are purchased in southern PA, MD and VA. The grading is similar to the grading of Birch, Natural or White.
Our primary selection is for color and gum content. The second criteria is size. We separate veneer logs in 4 clear face and 3 clear face. The procurement area is NY, PA and VA.
CTI purchases these logs in Missouri, Iowa and other States in the Midwest and separates the grades in 4 clear face and 3 clear face veneer logs. Further separations are made in different diameter classes.
Most of our Hard Maple logs are from the New England States and upstate New York, but we also purchase veneer and rotary logs in Canada.
Other names are Sugar Maple or Rock Maple.

We mix the Smooth Bark and Shag Bark in our sales. Hickory has only a limited value in international sales. The Smooth Bark Hickory is also called Pignut Hickory and the Shag Bark.
Hickory is also called Shellbark Hickory.
Red Oak is one of the dominant species in the Northeastern US, the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains. We harvest logs in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Additional logs are purchased the New England States, PA, NJ, and VA.
Sometimes Red Oak is also called Grey Oak.
White Oak is one of the top three species at CTI. We produce slicer veneer logs in several different sorts as well as 3-face logs. However, our specialty is rift logs with light color. In some areas in the US White Oak is also called Stave Oak.
We have three basic separations by color and additional grades by size or quality.
Yellow Poplar is also called Tulipwood, American Whitewood or Tulip Tree.
In addition to the above species we can supply Soft or Red Maple, Tupelo, Gum and Cedar. Please send us your requests and we will quote promptly.
