TimberTown not only carries the highest quality hardwood species for outdoor living, we also have the most in stock. With ten million board feet in the USA ready for delivery, we can supply the exotic hardwoods you need, when you need it. Through our partner and importer, we have a hardwood buyer who travels to Brazil each year and uses his personal relationships with our suppliers to ensure that we only buy from mills that follow responsible and legal harvesting practices. We also dictate how our suppliers package and ship by inspecting each container before and after arrival - thats why we offer the best Hardwoods in Austin Texas.

It Pays To Be Dense
There's no doubt hardwoods outlast lumber products like Cedar or Treated Pine; here's how we prove it.
Using the Janka Hardness Test, we can determine hardwoods like Ipe are up to eight times harder than their decking counterparts like Cedar, Redwood, and Southern Yellow Pine. The extra density also means they are less likely to warp or bow over time.
Our partner and supplier sends a buyer to Brazil annually to inspect the mills and forests of our Brazilian hardwoods. This ensures we have the highest quality product harvested from a responsibly managed forest. As one of the few suppliers of Hardwoods in Austin Texas who purchases directly from the source, we can stand behind our product with confidence.
