Antique Heart Pine Flooring Adds Warmth and Beauty to any Home
Heart pine flooring is unlike any other flooring material you’ve ever seen. The last of the old growth long leaf pine that heart pine comes from was harvested at the very beginning of the 20th Century. We salvage this precious material from old buildings and give it a beautiful new second life as artisan quality flooring.
Heart pine flooring is sometimes called the queen of reclaimed wood flooring because of its grandeur and beauty. Aesthetically, heart pine pleases with rich amber and honey colors; and unique characteristics such as tight grained growth rings and cathedral grain patterns.

Durable Heart Pine Flooring
Though beautiful, heart pine flooring is also incredibly durable because it comes from the resinous heart wood. Centuries of growth make heart wood incredibly dense and sturdy. Though heart pine flooring is technically not made from a hardwood, heart pine’s structural integrity makes it about as hard as red oak. This hardness translates to durability and stability equal to hardwood.
Our heart pine flooring is milled only from salvaged antique heart pine. The heart pine material we select came from timbers that were long ago harvested from centuries old virgin forests, from trees up to five hundred years old. We recycle the buildings those trees became into beautiful flooring with a fascinating history. New growth timbers from the same species lack the historical appeal as well as the aesthetic and structural qualities of this fully mature heart pine flooring.
