Pecan and Hickory lumber are grouped together by the National Hardwood Lumber Association. The Association makes no distinction between these two species. Pecan/Hickory that is used by MAR-K is harvested from the Ohio River Valley region. Pecan/Hickory lumber has a white to cream-colored sapwood with a light tan to dark brown heartwood. Some of the lumber contains an abundance of bird peck, which gives the lumber a rustic appearance. Please note: When purchasing Pecan/Hickory or when selling a Pecan/Hickory job, the customer must be made aware of the multiple appearances of the lumber.  Pecan/Hickory is a very dense, hard lumber that machines well with proper tooling and finishes well. The lumber is used in the manufacture of kitchen cabinetry, fine furniture, and a limited amount of architectural millwork.
