Hickory Wide Plank Flooring
Installing hickory flooring in your home is like receiving a two-for-one deal. You’ll get a dramatic hardwood floor with a built-in insurance policy at no extra cost. That’s because hickory’s color variations and striking grain pattern are part and parcel of the hardest, most durable domestically harvested plank flooring available.
So, you can breathe easy when your mother-in-law begins doing the tango in her high heels in the living room, or the kids break out the hockey sticks and puck for a game in the upstairs hallway. The floor will handle it and continue to look new for generations.
Here at family-owned Vermont Plank Flooring, we take pride in custom grading and crafting each individual plank of hickory specifically for your project. Because we work with only sustainably harvested, fully mature trees and hand-select each board, we are able to provide impeccably beautiful wide-width planks not found elsewhere. And we do it at surprisingly affordable prices.
Hickory wood is prized in the southern United States for use in smoking, curing, and barbecuing meat. Its dense wood makes for a slow, even burn and adds to the meat’s flavor. In fact, the entire hickory tree is, in many ways, antithetical to today’s faster-is-better world; it’s simply in no rush at all. It is slow-growing; the average shagbark, which is the fastest-growing hickory species, is less than three inches in diameter and about 12 feet tall on its 20th birthday. It doesn’t produce nuts until approximately its 40th birthday and continues to do so for up to 300 years.
That snail’s pace results in a wood of extremes—in size, strength, and aesthetics.
