The Southern Pine Awareness Network, the funding organization for Wood. It’s Real., was founded in January of 2005 with the goal of raising the awareness of Southern Yellow Pine as a leading building material. Led by funding from members of the Southeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association (SLMA), SPAN is designed to be an information clearing house for homeowners.
SPAN promotes the use of Southern Pine in both interior and exterior applications, including: framing, flooring, paneling, ceiling panels, porch flooring, decking, gazebos, play sets, and other backyard projects.
A Sturdy Choice
Building with Southern Pine is not just a strong environmental decision. You are choosing to support your local economy and the people in it by purchasing a homegrown product.
