LONGLEAF HEART PINE
Longleaf Heart Pine is most popular of the reclaimed Southern Pines. It is available today, mostly from reclamation of dismantled 19th and early 20th c. warehouses, factories and mills. It grew in long unbroken tracts from the Carolinas to Texas and into North Florida. Longleaf is unique among the Southern heartwoods for it’s exceptionally dense figure and high resin content . It is a warm and durable wood for flooring, paneling, shelving and furniture. Characteristics of its industrial and natural history include nail holes, small stress cracks and sound knots. It can also be special order graded for Select #1 and vertical grain patterns.
COLOR AND SURFACE FEATURES:
It naturally has amber red and brown color hues within a dense resinous figure; however, it can be color toned if desired. The raw material will generally have a darker natural patina. It can be remilled and planed to a smooth surface, bandsawn texture, or distressed. The color will become lighter, when milled.
