HEART PINE WOOD

Heart Pine is the old growth Yellow Pine once common in the American South and Atlantic Coast regions.  These trees were very dense and high in resign content.  As a result, Heart Pine is very durable.  It is not uncommon to find boards with 15+ growth rings to the inch.  Many old factory buildings were built using Heart Pine because the trees grew quite large, were very straight and had long trunks.
