Waller Creek Lumber Company
Waller Creek Lumber Company is now in the business of bringing you back apart of Texas
history. We have longleaf pine available in astounding dimensions.
There was once a stand of longleaf pine trees in East Texas estimated at 107 billion board
feet. It covered 5,000 sq. miles from the Louisiana Border to the Trinity River. These trees
took over 150 years to mature and reached heights of 145 feet. By the turn of the 20th century
they were gone. When loggers cleared these virgin forests, the trees never returned. Their
delicate ecological balance had been permanently destroyed.
Once the primary structural and ornamental building material in Texas and the gulf south,
longleaf pine is now available only through reclamation of buildings constructed with those
first ancient timbers. Everyone familiar with accurate restoration and fine custom building has
wished for a permanent supply of this increasingly hard-to-find material. It is prized for its
beautiful amber color, its superabundance of heart wood (straight grain) and its incredible
strength and density.
Now, Waller Creek Lumber Co. is set up to supply you with this fine native Texas wood in
all dimensions and in any grade stock. Longleaf pine is now available whenever a preferred
option to other wood is desired.
