A few of the species that can be harvested in the Hancock area are: birch, maple, oak, cherry, curly maple, ash, and red oak. beech, butternut, elm, poplar, and walnut. You can manufacture your finished product where your raw material is readily available without the worry of excessive transportation costs.


Bluestone manufacture is not only one the foundations of the local economy, but literally  the foundation of many American iconic structures as well, such as, The Statue of Liberty, and Empire State Building. Bluestone is a popular dimensional stone due to it's durability, attractive appearance and the it's "workability" in the hands of a skilled mason. It is a proven natural material used in fabricating  city curbs, sidewalks, walkways, retaining walls,  foundations, facades, terraces, patios and other architectural and building structures.
