American Basswood Lumber in Wisconsin

American Basswood from a Wisconsin Lumber Supplier

American basswood, sometimes called American linden, thrives in the upper Midwest and Great Lakes region. The Menominee Forest is home to a healthy population of linden trees, which allows Menominee Tribal Enterprises to supply Wisconsin lumber yards and wood brokers with quality cuts of American basswood.

New York State’s Iroquois nation made extensive use of basswood’s workability, using hand tools to carve ceremonial masks from the trunks. It’s well suited for carving and has fibrous bark.

Basswood Characteristics

Basswood trees are medium-sized with a fast growth rate, but are difficult to cultivate. The wood of the basswood tree is very pale with a fine but tight grain. It stains quite well and has fair resistance to splitting, allowing basswood millwork to take screws and nails well.

Basswood has a Janka hardness level of 410 lbf which makes it popular for moulding and other shaped wood.
