This species showcases the most extreme color variations of any of the species we carry. The sapwood is generally of an off-white color that can have pink or yellow undertones. The heartwood is of a dark or medium brown. Hickory’s grain pattern varies greatly from one board to the next, making for a very lively looking floor. Hickory is considerably denser than Red Oak and Maple, which makes it an excellent floor for high traffic areas.
Sapwood and heartwood mixed grade, unlimited mineral streaks and character marks permitted, limited sound or patched knots permitted. The average length of planks is better than those of the Advantage grade.
