Dade County Pine Wood

Our Antique Heart Pine Flooring is sourced from old growth Long Leaf Yellow Pine also known as Dade County Pine in South Florida. Tidewater or Sinker Cypress and Knotty Pine are just some of the recycled and sustainable wood products offered by Albany Woodworks.

Our wood carries a history, one that started in the original virgin-growth forests of Southern Louisiana and Dade County, Florida. Dade County Pine was discovered by the Spanish conquistadors in the 1500’s. Dade County Pine, or Longleaf Yellow Pine, comes from the “heart” of the tree, thus making it dense, strong, and highly resistant to decay and insect damage. This durable, long-lasting wood is no longer available for harvesting, as it comes from the original virgin-growth forests of the South.   Albany Woodworks is the only source to get this superb quality of reclaimed antique heart pine lumber.

This same high quality Heart Pine wood floor was added to many original Victorian and Antebellum homes along the Mississippi River and coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  During this construction period heart pine rivaled hardwood flooring in density and work-ability.  Antique pine flooring was the material of choice when it was first introduced.  You will find Antique Heart Pine flooring, stair treads, and structural materials in almost every Victorian era home in any American city east of the Mississippi River.

Antique Heart Pine one of our most popular flooring options at Albany Woodworks, Inc. One of the first companies in the United States to offer reclaimed heart pine flooring from heartwood materials harvested long ago.  These slow growing trees from the virgin growth Southern Long leaf pine forests have growth rings that are much denser than new pine.

The Longleaf pine is named for its unique and very long needles hanging from springy branches.  A unique member of the pine tree family which once dominated the forests that stretched from our southeastern coast and on west to east Texas.  These ancient, towering 200 years ago pine wood was harvested in colors of rich gold to amber to the warm browns. 

Pine flooring from Louisiana was more than plentiful then and was freely exported to other states and other countries because of it’s special durability and beauty.trees yielded the best type of long straight grained lumber.   

Reclaimed Heart Pine from Old Pine Beams

In our country’s recent history, Antique Heart Pine was the preferred structural material, working like steel does today, for “brick and timber” style mill buildings. You could say that Long leaf Heart Pine was instrumental in the success of the American Industrial Revolution.

The last of these majestic giants were cut down in the mid-1920’s.  The conditions that allowed for slow growth and dense heart centers would never be present again.  By their very nature, taking hundreds of years to mature, they were not considered for replanting and were replaced by faster growing varieties. It was the close of a special era in our country’s history.
