River Recovered Sinker Pine
At one time Longleaf Pine forests covered nearly 90 million acres of the Southeastern U.S. And those forests had trees that had been growing for hundreds of years. Today those forests and the giants they contained are gone.
Logging depleted those forests, but while those logs were being harvested and transported down the waterways of Northwest Florida and Southern Alabama, some sank to the bottom and were lost.
That’s where we come in. We’re specialists at finding River Reclaimed Pine, and we travel those waterways in search of the prized “sinkers” that have remained submerged for up to 100 years!
River Reclaimed Sinker Pine is a fantastic, hard wood, and after resting in the cool water and mud of the southern rivers, the Sinker Pine Logs can take on a variety of beautiful hues as they absorb the minerals in the water.
River Reclaimed Sinker Pine is just as well suited for historic restoration as it is for new construction, and provides our customers with the unique and gorgeous character that can only come from Sinker Pine.
You may have also heard of the fantastic Curly Sinker Pine. Although quite rare, we’re always on the lookout for Curly Sinker Pine and occasionally find them. If you’re particularly interested in Curly Sinker Pine, just get in touch with us and we’ll let you know what we have available.
