Southern Longleaf Heart Pine
While Antique Heart Pine has been reclaimed from demolished buildings and recovered from rivers for many years, another resource for Heart Pine is now available. The same Southern Longleaf Heart Pine that was so prized for the first 300 years of colonization is now available as flooring again - milled from trees that are set aside when the much faster growing Southern Yellow Pine is harvested. Botanically the same as the antique species, and only slightly less dense (no longer growing in a competitive forest environment) it will once again provide years of enjoyment as it mellows to that same characteristic deep red and amber color - but, for a whole lot less money than the antique! An oil-based finish will accelerate the warm tones and accent the grain.
