A comparison of Pine Mountain Brand Heart Pine Flooring and antique heart pine.

Antique heart pine makes beautiful floors, but the cost is very high. Some producers of antique heart pine products say things such as "the trees the wood came from are extinct or are no longer available". These statements are totally false. Although longleaf southern yellow pine is not as common as it once was, it is still growing and harvested today. Granted the great giant trees of yesteryear are not seen anymore, but this is true of all species of trees. When you compare Pine Mountain Brand Heart Pine to antique heart pine, Pine Mountain Brand is the clear choice.
