Beartooth Hickory Wide-Plank Hardwood Flooring

From the first time Lewis and Clark encountered a grizzly bear on their westward expedition, the animal has been revered for its fierce determination and strength. We greatly admire these qualities, which the pioneers of the Wild West also embodied as they settled a new land.

Inspired by the strength and majestic beauty of the famous grizzly bear, our Beartooth Hickory wide-plank floors are machined using an antique, 60-in. saw blade to replicate a circular sawn look of early milling. Pioneers immediately recognized the resilience and indestructibility of this striking wood and used it in many applications.

The quality hickory hardwood flooring we offer today pays homage to that time in our nation’s past when grizzly bears roamed and pioneers explored in their covered wagons. We admire the strength and resilience of our great forefathers, and we want our flooring to reflect that time when grit and determination helped build up our gorgeous nation. This unfinished Hickory hardwood flooring provides that link to our past to remind us that we should be striving to honor our American legacy.

Why Choose Hickory Flooring Made From Old-Growth Wood?

Although it may be from the same species, old-growth wood is much different than the trees covering most of the nation today. "Old-growth" refers to trees over 200 and 300 years old. In contrast, most of the lumber-producing trees today reach somewhere between 25 and 40 years old before being harvested.

These trees date back to when the landscape was covered in virgin forests. They grew under thick canopies, and the fight for space and light made them grow slow, making tight growth rings that are strong and incredibly dense. This process offers several advantages when the tree is used to make wide-plank flooring.

Solid hickory hardwood flooring made with old-growth lumber is:

  • More attractive: Old-growth lumber has an unmistakable look. The tight growth rings mean each piece has more to look at than the average board — these planks often have stunning and intricate patterns to take in.
  • More durable: The density in old-growth timber makes it exceptionally durable against damage, moisture and wear. These wide planks are suited for installation in any room where you want to make improvements, including kitchens and high-traffic areas.
  • More interesting: When you install wide-plank hickory flooring made with old-growth wood, you're putting a piece of history in your home. This lumber is hard to find and has an heirloom quality. The planks will last for decades or more.
  • The Benefits of Installing Hickory Hardwood Floors

    Hickory is one of the hardest domestic woods — harder than oak, walnut and cherry. It's also lumber known for having intricate woodgrain, knotting, color variations and mineral streaks. Floors made with hickory will undoubtedly catch the eye, and the rich brown tones will add a warming effect to any room.

    Because hickory is hard, it's also tough to scratch up. You'll have a reduced chance of leaving scratches, dings or damage on your planks if you drop something on them or move your furniture. If you want to stain your floors, hickory takes and holds color well. To stain, be sure to select an unfinished option.
