What is Heart Pine flooring?
Heart Pine flooring is a wood floor that is crafted with boards cut from the center, or heart, of Longleaf Yellow Pine trees. Timbers from the Longleaf Pine were used as a strong building material throughout the Southeast and Eastern Seaboard in the 1800s, earning a reputation as “the wood that spawned the American Industrial Revolution.” Although Heart Pine technically considered a “softwood” it has a hardness that rivals Red Oak and will be more resistant to dents and dings seen in other softwood floors such as Eastern White Pine.
What is wide plank Heart Pine flooring?
Wide plank Heart Pine flooring is made of wider and longer floorboards that produce a more spacious feel in the room and that allow the personality of the wood to emerge more fully. Wide plank floors may use boards as wide as 20″ and as long as 12′.
Why choose Heart Pine flooring?
Heart Pine flooring may be the right choice for customers who want:
- A warm rustic look. With more grain variation, knots and pin holes, Heart Pine flooring has a rustic charm that infuses a room with warmth and character.
- An eco-friendly choice. Pine trees grow much more rapidly than hardwood trees, enabling Pine forests to regenerate more quickly.
- A less expensive floor. Pine plank flooring may cost as much as 50% less than hardwood counterparts.
