Locally produced quality hardwoods and softwoods

Leave the box stores behind! Because at Wightman Lumber, we don’t just sell wood. We help you buy wood. It’s not just a purchase… it’s an experience, backed by three generations of family expertise and friendly, knowledgeable service that you won’t get anywhere else.

At Wightman, we mill the wood, dry it, grade it, finish it, inspect it, and then help you hand select it, based on your project needs. And it’s all done right here at our sawmill and retail location near Cooperstown, New York.

Come to our manufacturing facility and discover the benefits of buying direct. You’ll soon see how our family-run business earned its reputation as one of the region’s top resources for hardwood lumber, 4/4 lumber, and green building.

From wood siding to outdoor decking, hardwood flooring to beadboard millwork and cabinet lumber, Wightman offers expertise and quality that will add beauty — and value — to your home renovation, commercial remodel, new home construction, or historic building restoration.
