Hancock Lumber has been working with Eastern White Pine since 1848. Century-old homes stand today with beautiful Eastern White Pine siding and trim that has endured New England’s rugged winters and hot, humid summers. Grown primarily in the Northeastern United States, Maine’s climate is perfect for the tree’s slow, steady growth that provides tight growth rings resulting in bright, straight, flat and stable boards. It takes 80 to 100 years to grow a mature Eastern White Pine tree tall and straight with the strength and character that make it the gold standard of soft woods. Hancock Eastern White Pine boards are the perfect fit for interior and exterior trim, mouldings, siding, furniture, cabinets, millwork, flooring and more!
