Heart Pine is typically reclaimed old growth pine. It is reclaimed and as a result can come with cracks, nail/screw holes. That being said though, the beautiful coloring and tighter, old growth rings sing tradition, beauty and class.
Sustainability: This species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is reported by the IUCN as being “vulnerable.”
Common Uses: Furniture, flooring.
Comments: Whilst there are many plantation pine species available, there is something special about this old growth heart pine.
