About Us


Message from the Founder

As a woodworker myself, I can attest to a lack of locally sourced wood products in the Albuquerque area. For ages, we’ve been throwing out our cut trees, then buying lumber from out of state or out of country. I started Cut & Dry Lumber Company to fill that gap, and to make wood available from the trees in which we’ve invested so many resources. 

Since 1979, Baca’s Trees, Inc has been caring for the trees of Albuquerque and other areas of New Mexico. Their focus is on the health of the trees and the community. Since the very beginning, a part of that dedication is a refusal to take tree materials to the landfills. 

The Cut & Dry Lumber Mill is an extension of that commitment — another way to make use of the trees we take down. In cooperation with the Baca’s Trees crews, Cut & Dry harvests and processes select tree trunks into boards, slabs, and other project materials. Recycling cut trees into materials for our amazing community of woodworkers is a real pleasure, and an honor. 

Thank you for exploring this wonderful local resource, and including urban lumber in your next project!
