About SPF

Canadian SPF is divided into two categories: Eastern SPF and Western SPF. Primary characteristics of SPF are small tight knots and a high strength-to-weight ratio.

     Eastern SPF
     Western SPF

European SPF is graded to meet US lumber standards. It is an industry premium for home center and appearance grade applications.

Finger-jointed or structural-glued products are interchangeable with solid-sawn products of the same grade and species per US building codes.


We were a pioneer in bringing Western SPF into the US market. Today, AIFP remains in the forefront of SPF marketing. We are an integral part of the lumber distribution chain. Moving over 350 MBF annually - we know the SPF market.
