Lovell Lumber Co., Inc. produces some of the finest quality Eastern White Pine boards in New England. Our lumber products are distributed mainly through wholesalers and wholesale distributors. Retail customers are welcome to visit the mill’s on-site retail outlet, the Pine Shop, for great deals.
Lovell Lumber Co., Inc. manufactures over 5.5 million board feet of Eastern White Pine lumber annually; producing 1 x 4 through 1 x 12 widths, available in a variety of common and specialty patterns, as well as some 5/4, 6/4, and 8/4 items.
Our raw material base is within a 50 mile radius of the mill which is nestled in the pristine Saco River Valley of Western Maine. This area is known for its sandy soils and perfect growing conditions, yielding some of the highest quality Eastern White Pine timber in North America.
Lovell Lumber Co. was purchased in October of 1973 by Edward and Helen Woodbrey. At first the mill was producing only 3 thousand board feet per day of rough, green Eastern Hemlock manufactured on a circular saw mill. Ed and Helen soon realized that the mill had a much greater potential than was being shown.
Management of the mill was handed down to the eldest son Mark when Ed passed away in 1983. Mark has carried on with his dad’s original focus of quality over quantity, and that philosophy has made Lovell Lumber what it is today. All production is graded 3 times by NeLMA certified graders, and everyone that touches the board in the manufacturing process has grading knowledge.
