Alder lumber for sale
Alder is often confused with the birch tree, given that they both belong to the birch family. However, alder (genus Alnus) is distinguishable from a birch tree through its stalked winter buds. Conelike structures also remain on alder’s branches even after it releases small, winged nutlets. Alder has many uses in woodwork, given its plentiful supply across the Pacific Northwest. Alder lumber is widely distributed in the Northern Hemisphere and some parts of western South America.
