Huey Brothers Lumber Company is located in an area of fine hardwood forests and rolling cropland in the northwest corner of Tennessee. Prior to 1999, we manufactured quality hardwood lumber for over 50 years. With the passing of James A. Huey, who founded the firm with his brother D.B. Huey, Jr. in the 1940's, the family decided to withdraw from manufacturing operations to concentrate on other endeavors, while maintaining stewardship of its holdings of timberlands.
Before we discontinued manufacturing operations,
we utilized an 8' McDonough Bandmill with a 6' McDonough Line-bar Resaw at our Obion,
Tennessee plant. All of our lumber passed through a multi-saw drop-saw end-trimmer,
resulting in uniform lengths and a better yield for our customers. Our dry kiln and
planer facilities were located in Dyersburg, Tennessee. Kiln Dried lumber shipped
from our Dyersburg plant by truck and container. T
Prior to retirement, we were proud to provide some 45 jobs
for our community.
Users of our products included some of the finest companies in the Furniture, Millwork, and Specialty Products areas. Our channels of distribution included direct-to-end-user, wholesalers, and distribution yards.
Huey Brothers Lumber Company continues to utilizes sustained-yield forestry management techniques to enhance the productivity of the forest. Through proper management of our lands, we increase the yield of hardwood trees from the forest in quantity, quality and specie mix. We do no clear-cutting. Wildlife populations are encouraged and we have seen a notable increase in Deer and Bird populations over the last three decades. Contrary to the misperceptions of many, the lumber industry can be and generally is a good steward of the land.
We are proud to have the opportunity to manage the land while
producing timber to be converted into lumber which becomes the fine hardwood floors,
cabinetry, furniture and mouldings that will be enjoyed and cherished by people for
