About Our Select Grade Hickory Flooring

Select grade Hickory is our highest grade of American Hickory wood flooring, featuring predominantly clear grain. Of all the varieties of Hickory that grow in the United States, our Hickory is derived almost exclusively from Pignut Hickory, the hardest of them all.

A truly American hardwood, Hickory is a hard and heavy wood that has been used for ax and hammer handles, wagon wheels, golf club shafts, and drumsticks. It offers excellent impact resistance.

You may be familiar with the Shagbark variety (Carya ovata) of Hickory which is easily recognized by its long shaggy strips of bark. Hickory is denser than other hardwoods of the northern forest, including Maple and Oak.

The contrast between hickory’s cream colored sapwood and warm brown heartwood creates a light and dark striated appearance equally at home in a traditional or modern setting.
