Reclaimed Heart Pine
Reclaimed Heart Pine or Antique Heart Pine is beautiful strong durable wood that is being reclaimed from warehouses, textile mills, and other edifices built over one hundred years ago. Reclaimed Heart Pine was originally produced from Southern Longleaf Pine trees in the late 1800's and early 1900's. During the Industrial Revolution the vast Southern forests were harvested rapidly. By the end of the Revolution most of these virgin forests had been depleted. Some of the forests still produce Southern Longleaf Pine but they are harvested as soon as they are large enough to produce lumber. It takes over 100 years of aging to produce the desired growth rings and patina found in Reclaimed Heart Pine. This abundant resource of the past is a valuable asset of the present. It is well worth the trouble of harvesting from older buildings. Many different industries rely on Lumber; there is a great need for it. Using reclaimed Heart Pine is a way to reclaim the past and preserve the future in a beautiful, historical and elegant product.
