The Hardwood Division of Whitethorn Construction is dedicated to the commercial development of Native California Hardwoods. Having worked with local hardwoods for decades as woodworkers, Whitethorn has accumulated and dried hundreds of thousands of feet of hardwood lumber, slabs and millwork products. On site milling, drying, and manufacturing allows Whitethorn to offer finished products, kiln dried lumber, slabs and tongue and groove flooring to the public. Native California Hardwoods is our only business; we are not a source for other hardwood species. We are locally owned and operated.
Our main species are Tan Oak, California Claro Walnut and Madrone. We work also with Pepperwood, Black Oak, Chinquapin, and other native species. We have learned from our reading, the University of California forestry lab, and companies previously in the field. We have utilized the resources of the Institute for Sustainable Forestry, and our own experience over the last 40+ years. We invite you to use us as a resource for your own hardwood building needs.
We provide services to the general public. The most requested services are planing, resawing and log milling. All of these are performed here on our premises. We are occasionally able to offer kiln drying as well.
