Southern Yellow Pine Flooring

Grades & Specs | Solid Plank Prices

Warm and inviting, Southern Yellow Pine Flooring – also called yellow pine flooring or Southern pine flooring – is an American classic. Imparting a distinctively traditional look, yellow pine flooring comes from one of our most abundant and renewable species – Southern Yellow Pine.

The most prevalent tree in the southern forest and the preferred construction wood of the 19th century, Southern Yellow Pine was used for everything from clipper ship masts to warehouse timbers to residential flooring. This plain sawn, short leaf Yellow Pine represents the least expensive, yet one of the most traditional flooring choices available.  An oil finish will enhance the prominent grain and start mellowing the patina of your yellow pine flooring right away.
