AMERICAN TIMBER FROM APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS
Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc. (AHMI) has verified data from the U.S. Forest Service that timber harvesting from the Appalachian Hardwood Territory as defined by AHMI is meeting present needs without compromising those of future generations sustainably. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Inventory and Analysis research has found that trees are growing at a rate of 2.45 to 1 being removed in the 344-county Appalachian Hardwood Region. The net annual growth has been increasing for more than 50 years.
The Appalachian Hardwood Timber resource includes more than 65.7 million acres in the eastern United States and provides the world with a bounty of the finest hardwood species. The natural conditions that create the Appalachian Mountains' magnificent scenery also produce the world's most beautiful hardwoods. Appalachian Hardwoods grown from northern Georgia to western New York are unique in all the world.
At elevations of 1,000 feet and up, all the elements create the ideal environment for superior quality hardwood trees. There are four characteristics that make Appalachian Hardwoods stand above hardwood lumber resources. Since the 1920s when hardwood from this region began to make a name for itself, Appalachian Hardwoods have: come from a sustainable forest; consistent grain patterns, color and durability; increased yield for manufacturers; and been made in the United States of America.
This tradition continues eight decades later as Appalachian Oaks, Cherry, Maple and Poplar set the standard for thousands of products and materials across the world. Slow maturity means tight growth rings, strong fibers and consistent grain patterns which give Appalachian lumber its coveted beauty, strength and durability. With so many elements working together, it's not surprising that Appalachian lumber sets the standard in thousands of products and materials around the globe.
