Prior to European settlement, Longleaf Pine covered as much as 90 million acres of land, stretching from Florida to Virginia. The settlers and their descendants prized the Longleaf Pine for its size, strength and abundance. Sadly, decades of deforestation and overharvesting have nearly eradicated this great species. Fortunately, the wood once used to build America is still available through reclamation. Following the Civil War, mills and factories were built along the East Coast using massive heart pine beams. Every year, more and more of these 19th century facilities become slated for demolition. Prior to demolion, Mountain Lumber rescues thousands of board feet of heart pine that would otherwise be sent to a landfill.
From the formal, colonial look of our 100% vertical-grain Rift Heart Pine to the rustic elegance of our character-rich Hermitage Heart Pine, we have an unparalleled selection of top-quality antique reclaimed heart pine in a variety of widths to meet (and exceed) all of your expectations.
