About Hester's Lumber
Family-owned specialty lumber yard
Hester’s Log & Lumber opened in 1987 with humble hearts, one saw, and no office. Kent & Cindy Hester, owners of the sawmill at the time, worked hard to grow and diversify Hester’s lumber products as customer demand grew. They worked through the recession, which hit their business hard, as people stopped building new homes, but they never lost hope, and thankfully, were able to keep all employees staffed year round and full time.
Kent & Cindy are now happily retired and have handed over the reigns and business to their oldest son, Forrest, and his wife Lindsey. Forrest and Lindsey work equally as hard to provide the quality that Hester’s customers have come to expect.
Not only are the owners keeping it in the family - our millners are, too. We have several father / son teams on the saws, and half of our staff has been part of the Hester's Lumber family for more than 20 years.
