In the old-growth forests of Ontario there are still trees more than 400 years in age. They existed before Europeans set foot upon Canada’s shores. As the trees reach the end of their lifespan, they may die standing and later fall to the forest floor. Over decades and centuries, these trees undergo natural weathering as they endure the elements of the passing seasons. When repurposed for hardwood flooring, this old-growth wood offers an authentic, exceptionally tight grain only found in virgin timber – a look that cannot be duplicated in new materials.
