HEART PINE MILL RUN pinus palustris
Used to build the industrial revolution, Longleaf Yellow Pine was said to have been the south best kept secret. It was used in almost every industry from shipbuilding to making payments to rebuilding cities after the great fires. This wood was very desirable for its structural strength and integrity and durability.
It was almost entirely wiped out but now I’m mostly found from reclaiming old buildings. This wood has the warmest tones and feelings that can liven up any room in the house. We offer three grades; clear vertical grain (CVG), select plank and Mill Run.
Mill Run is known to us as the camp grade because it will have a mix of sap and hardwood, knots and spike knots, the heart of the tree or pith, random nail holes, light distressing, varying color patterns and other natural and man-made imperfections.
