I have had the pleasure to work with Southwood Forest Products for over 16 years now. They have been a great partner for the success of our business. You simply can't find a supplier that cares as much about earning your business than Jay and his staff!

I have been dealing with Wes Franks from Southwood Forest Products for a few years now and my dealings have always been spot on. Wes has been a pleasure to deal with and when he is out, whoever I talk with has always been very polite and professional. Their prices and service to me are very competitive and shipping has been pretty much right on time.

I deal in truckloads shipped direct to our facility in Oklahoma City, direct to my customers around Oklahoma and jobsites such as hotels. If a problem does come up, Wes will always notify me so we can get it taken care of. I would recommend Southwood Forest Products to anyone that asks.

I have known Jay since his early days of entering into the building supply market. I have had a working relationship with Jay through the years, including since the start-up of Southwood Forest Products. His group has always been very professional, always prompt and ready to help with any of our needs. Southwood’s full product line has always been very helpful for our company, whether we needed plywood, spruce, or even pine lumber products.
