Because the lumber we produce
is kiln dried, the result is a product which will hold up
against extremes in climate. Kiln dried southern yellow pine
from Millville Lumber is stronger, less likely to develop
'nail pop' and is free of bugs. Kiln drying reduces the
moisture content of wood at a rate that will not cause damage
to the wood's natural strength.
utilizing a state of the art computer controlled kiln, lumber
which used to air dry for months or even years before being
used, can now be prepared in 48 hours. Unlike air dried logs
which dry at a different rate depending on surface exposure,
kiln dried wood products are uniform in moisture content.
