Pine Drying

• Our goal is to surpass industry standards for consistency in drying.
• Eastern White Pine typically takes 7 days in the kiln to dry properly.
• Kiln Drying Technicians carefully monitor the drying process in each kiln.
• The lumber is ready only when the average moisture content and standard deviation meets or exceeds Hancock’s drying standards no matter how long it takes in the kiln.

*Standard deviation is a measure of the amount of variability in moisture content within a kiln load of lumber.
