Greenheart Tan T&G Flooring - Product Info

Trestlewood's reclaimed Greenheart flooring is salvaged from the floors of decommissioned railroad boxcars. Greenheart was perfect for its original use as boxcar flooring because it is incredibly dense and durable. (Greenheart is rated as roughly twice as hard as oak using the Janka Hardness Index).

The lumber is painstakingly removed from the metal structure of the boxcar and then milled into tongue and groove flooring. The resulting product is sorted into Tans and Reds, although many customers mix the two colors. Every piece comes complete with several screw holes and associated staining at no additional charge!

See this interesting summary of Greenheart history and uses.

KnotsGreenheart T&G Flooring is not sorted for knots, but there are very few knots.
