Why Heart Pine is Special

Heart pine flooring is prized for it’s rich, natural colors and gorgeous, unique grain patterns.
With hardness similar to Oak, and once used to build sailing ships and textile mills, it’s salvaged from old buildings and barns and given a new career when it becomes reclaimed flooring.

  • It greatly increases the value of your home
  • It’s stable, durable and easy to maintain
  • It’s rich color like no other wood in existence
  • It gets more beautiful with age
  • It’s a virgin heartwood which is now essentially extinct
  • It’s an environmentally green building material because no living trees have been cut down

Heart pine was one of the most valuable building materials in the 19th century and continues to be.

By the 1920s, every tree considered virgin-growth Longleaf pine had been logged. Since true old growth trees may have ring patterns that date 300- 500 years, younger generations of trees growing today will never possess  the quality of antique heart pine.
