During the mid-1900’s, Chestnut was virtually destroyed in the eastern United States by an Asian bark fungus. Now, one of the rarest of reclaimed hardwoods, our Wormy Chestnut hardwood flooring proudly showcases its marks of years passed. Insect-bored wormholes are a distinguishing characteristic of this once prized wood. Strong, straight-grained and easy to saw and split, Chestnut was used for centuries for everything from furniture to split-rail fences to telephone poles. Reclaimed from roof rafters, floor joists and granary boards in old barns, houses and factories, choosing commercially extinct Wormy Chestnut wide plank flooring for your home will add a priceless touch of America’s past.
