Where to buy hardwood in NY?

I live in upstate NY. The only hardwood dealer that I know of anywhere near me is Curtis Lumber. While good, I'd like to find a second place to compare prices & availability.

I visit family down closer to NYC quite often. I am looking for any hardwood dealers in the upstate NY (Albany) region, or southern NY/Northern NJ. The phone book only leads me to flooring suppliers....

Any ideas? Thanks!

Ask around for some small sawmill owners. Some of them have kilns & sell lumber. If you were closer to Ithaca NY I could help you with kiln dried hardwoods. I have a woodmizer mill & Kiln for small loads & the species varies. I have a load of red oak in the kiln now & some cherry & silver maple dry.
good luck,
jim

Curtis has a lot of good choices, but being a full service dealer of pre-dimensioned stock, their prices are a little high. Watch the sales and coupons!

I've never been to this place, but have heard of Lakeshore Hardwoods in Pulaski, NY

There's a lot of timber up your way, it shouldn't be too hard to find a saw mill or rough sawn lumber dealer. You might see if you can find out who supplies Curtis.

This link might help.... Woodfinder!

How about Niagara Lumber. They often advertise in the wood rags. He is outside of Buffalo.

Lakeshore Hardwoods also has a location in downtown Syracuse.

In addition there is Memphis Hardwood Lumber
www.memphishardwoodlumber.com in Memphis, NY about a 20 minute
drive from downtown Syracuse. They carry rough sawn hardwood and can plane and square for an additional fee.
I have purchased from Memphis many times. Paul (the owner) is normally there and is very knowledgable on the various woods.

I use Northern Hardwoods Lumber Corp in Lake George. Good supply and good pricing. Nice people that help you out or even let you browse

They have pretty much everything you want. A solid 2 hour drive from Albany though. With a break it would probably be 2 hours each way. Stormville would be about 1 hour closer if they allow you to pickup there.

Valente Lumber is much closer. I found them on the Internet and I have no recommendation one way or the other. About 20 minutes from Albany.
