Cook Lumber Offers Black Locust and Sassafras Decking

Cook Lumber provides premium hardwood lumber used for decking. Both Black Locust and Sassafras are great hardwoods for decking due to their excellent resistance to rotting. Black Locust Decking and Sassafras Decking are both great alternatives to typical Heat Treated Pine Lumber, which we also provide. Heat Treated Pine contains chemicals that many don’t prefer today, and Black Locust and Sassafras don’t use these chemicals to be durable and rot-resistant. Black Locust decking is extremely durable for outdoor use, and Sassafras decking is very affordable and easily stained. Learn more about these hardwoods in the links above.
