Eastern White Pine Flooring

A Piece of Americana

Loved by early New England colonists because they could cut longer, wider planks from mature trees widely available in the area, Eastern White Pine was widely used for structural timbers, siding and interior wainscoting — but it was especially popular for wide plank flooring since it allowed for a quick installation and minimal maintenance. Technically a “soft” wood, this durable American favorite develops its own unique character and becomes harder through wear. Today, our restoration quality Eastern White Pine flooring features a smooth grain and beautiful knots, with versatile finish capabilities, making it extremely popular for a range of décor styles.
