The beauty of Southern Yellow Pine
Many homes are! But while many of today's professionals choose SYP when framing a house or building a deck, we use it to construct the best Swing Sets on the market!

  • Superior Strength and Stiffness Southern Yellow Pine is the strongest softwood structural lumber species, as published in the National Design Specification® (NDS®) for Wood Construction. Design values for Southern Yellow Pine are the highest of all commonly used wood species.
  • Highest Density Southern Yellow Pine also has the highest density of all structural lumber species, providing superior fastener holding power and load bearing capacity. 
  • Natural Beauty Southern Yellow Pine offers a distinct grain pattern and an appealing golden color. Because of this natural beauty, exposed Southern Yellow Pine provides architectural appeal. 
  • Green Building Material Choosing domestic Southern Yellow Pine, a product grown in the USA is not only a good environmental choice but also an opportunity to support local economies.
