About Wightman Lumber

The Wightman Lumber Family

Wightman History

Three generations of commitment to quality

In 1945, brothers Charles and Cyrus Wightman climbed into Charlie’s Ford Model A pickup truck and drove to Laurens, New York, for their first logging and milling job. With little more than an Ireland sawmill, a Cletrac Crawler tractor and a drive to succeed, Wightman Specialty Woods was born.

Over the last six decades Wightman’s has grown into a full-scale wood-manufacturing operation committed to bringing the highest quality wood products to the market. Exacting standards combined with impeccable craftsmanship have created Wightman’s reputation as one of the region’s top resources for solid wood materials.
