Hickory Wide Plank Flooring

Hailed for its natural beauty and durability, hickory is a one-of-a-kind species. Hickory wide plank flooring is well-known for its stunning color variation. The sapwood and the heartwood of the tree vary from a light, almost tan color, to a deep, rich brown. With a Janka hardness rating,  of 1820, hickory is 41% harder than Northern red oak. It’s also a very dense wood with above average shock resistance. President Andrew Jackson earned the nickname “Old Hickory” for his resilience and tough attitude.

Natural-grade hickory wide plank hardwood floors typically contain numerous character markings and knots that make hickory truly stand out from other species. Wide planks are particularly suited for this species because they really show off the grain detail and character markings.
