HHI – Exclusive Distributor of Bozovich Timber Products

Never has the compaction from an old Jack Benny joke “everything from “A to Z in the USA” been more relevant. The large A emblazoned on a slope of the San Gabriel Mountains, visible from Heppner Hardwoods five acre facility, represents the city of  A Z U S A i.e. Azusa, U.S.A.. And now, President Obama has highlighted the A and put Azusa on the map by designating the San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument. This is the 12th such designation of the President’s administration. His intent is to protect the home to the rare and endangered species, including Nelson’s bighorn sheep, spotted owl, mountain yellow-legged frogs, Santa Ana suckers and unspecified flora. Heppner Hardwoods has just expanded our offering of international flora; “everything from A to Z ” by entering into a distribution agreement with the Bozovich Timber Group, a  producer of South American lumber and a worldwide importer of tropical and exotic lumber.

Heppner Hardwoods and the Bozovich Group have been forerunners for sustainable forestry and by reason of our expanded offerings of FSC(R) Certified lumber, we are protecting and precluding the endangerment of forests both  nationally and internationally and their respective species of hardwoods bearing names starting with the letters from A through Z.
