A Message to Our Valued Customers
In what is now our 140th year of doing business, Robbins Lumber has faced many challenges. Through it all we have strived to deliver quality products and unparalleled customer service. 2020 proved a challenge to many producers to keep up with unprecedented demand, and 2021 is proving no different. While we do our best as a company to give accurate lead times, we are in uncharted waters, and this is causing us to miss some of our projections. We understand that this causes frustrations on our customers' end and disrupts projects. We apologize for these delays, and are attempting to adjust to this new reality and to provide accurate expectations. We appreciate your patience while we attempt to adjust to these times, and ask for your understanding that we are doing everything in our power to get you the same quality products you have come to depend on as quickly as possible. I speak for the entire Robbins Lumber family when I say we appreciate your business, and the partnerships that we have with our customers.

Vice President/Sales Manager
Our white pine lumber is considered among the best for either exterior or interior applications. This soft, stable wood resists warping, is one of the least resinous of all pines, and has a beautiful red-knotted appearance. Easy to handle due to being lightweight, it is also excellent for stain, paint, and lacquer finishes.
Robbins Lumber stands apart by being the most flexible in widths, grades, patterns, packaging, and shipping. Consistently meeting our customers' high quality and service demands is a great source of pride for all of our employees.
