Hammond Lumber Company Sawmill
Blending simply with many aesthetics and environments, Eastern White Pine's ability to hold colors and showcase detail make this wood species a favorite for both contempory designs and historical redux. Its interior and exterior versatility, along with availability, enhance its popularity for today's designs and specification demands.
We stay close to our sources and close to the people and businesses we support by getting our pine from areas within a 60-mile radius of our mill in Belgrade. We work hard to develop new equipment, processes and services that keep us at the forefront of the building materials industry. While we carry a full line of forest products, we're particularly proud of our leadership position in Eastern White Pine. Its strength and versatility make it universally recognized as the pine of choice for construction and interior purposes.
Inside our mill, you'll find a de-barker, a chipper, two circular sawmills with band re-saw, a planer mill, kilns and a bark processor. All of that equipment helps us to produce pine boards, paneling, bevel siding, log siding, decking, timber, exposed beams, and the machined pine logs that go into our Maine Pine Log Homes.
All in all, we currently saw more than 6,500,000 board feet each year. And we do it safely: Since 1985 we've had a Safety Committee that oversees our entire operation.
As a Maine industry, we're committed to making the most out of our Maine resources. Accordingly, we utilize the entire log. What doesn't go out the door as boards is converted into processed bark, sawdust, shavings and chips for sale throughout New England.
The next time you visit a Hammond Lumber Company retail store, take a close look at where the lumber is stored, what we call "the pine bin." Just as we're known for the quality of our pine, customers also comment on the neatness, accessibility and large selection of our forest products.
Here's Yankee ingenuity for you! We're one of the few suppliers around who manufacture and mill the lumber right in our own yard. We truck it, we mill it, we stack it right here, and you get the savings!
