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.


Our History:

Founded in the 1940's by James A. Huey and D.B. Huey, Sr., the firm grew from a small two-man operation into an international operation producing annually some 5 million board feet of Hardwood Lumber in a number of species. Our predominant species were Red Oak, Poplar, White Oak, and Cottonwood. In lesser quantities, production included a number of additional species, including Sap Gum, Sycamore, Hard Maple, Soft Maple, Walnut, and Beech. Some of our specialties included Rift and Quartered White Oak and Red Oak in 4/4 and 8/4 thicknesses, & 10/4 and 12/4 Poplar.

Our Facilities:

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

Our Personnel:

Prior to retirement, we were proud to provide some 45 jobs for our community.

Founder: James A. Huey (1925-1996)

Our Customers:

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.

Our Environmental Policies:

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 generations.
