Littrell Lumber Mill Inc. has integrated a number of processes to distinguish its products from all others. The result speaks for itself.

  • We only buy "grade logs"

    While our maximum production limits are lower than larger lumber mills, our smaller size allows for a more selective timber procurement process. Without having to meet the monthly quotas of larger commercial mills, Littrell Lumber focuses on purchases of "grade logs" only.

  • Quality Control

    At Littrell, we take a hands-on approach to the grading process. Every board is sawn and graded by a member of the family. This ensures first-rate quality control.

  • Longer Drying Times in Steam Kilns Produces Higher Quality Lumber

    The majority of other lumber mills use high temperature, direct fire, dry kilns with a 19-hour cycle time in order to produce as much dried lumber as possible in the shortest amount of time. This high-speed process can increase the percentage of warp and twist in finished lumber. To produce a consistently higher quality lumber, Littrell chooses to use a lower temperature steam kiln process for drying our lumber. By applying a more consistent lower temperature over an increased cycle time of 72 hours we are able to prevent numerous defects.
