“Green” and Enhance Your Home with Natural, Sustainable American Hardwoods

Looking for an eco-friendly way to add beauty and warmth to your home or office? Look no further than natural, sustainable American Hardwoods. Whether you’re installing hardwood floors, cabinetry, furniture or moulding, American Hardwoods bring the beauty of nature into the home with unmatched design flexibility.

In addition to being design-friendly, American Hardwoods are homegrown. Species such as birch, cherry, maple and oak have brought style to homes and commercial spaces for hundreds of years.

Here are just a few more reasons why American Hardwoods are the environmentally-conscious, and style conscious choice:

Renewable Resource: American Hardwoods are naturally abundant and self-regenerating in North American forests, and nearly twice as much hardwood grows as is harvested each year. According to the U.S. Forest Service, the volume of hardwoods today is 90 percent larger than it was 50 years ago. American Hardwoods are also responsibly managed – the predominant harvesting method is single-tree. And because they’re harvested in North America, less energy is used to transport them.

Enduring Value: Hardwood products can be treasured for generations, much longer than synthetic counterparts. In fact, museum quality pieces of American Hardwood furniture have been around for centuries! And, the classic style of American Hardwoods lends distinction to homes large or small, adding value to the home when it comes time to resell.

Natural Beauty: With more than two dozen hardwood species to choose from, American Hardwoods provide variety in color and pattern – more than any other temperate hardwood in the world. And different lumber grades and wood grains provide options to match with any décor. By bringing the beauty of nature indoors, American Hardwoods add warmth, charm and the ability to create a traditional or modern look.

Whether you’re making a statement with built-in cabinets, upgrading your family dining table, or adding some flair with mouldings and trim to your office, you can be sure that you will be using a sustainable, natural product when you choose American Hardwoods.
