It’s no secret that hardwood flooring is a popular choice among homeowners. Hardwood floors offer a classic look and incredible durability that can withstand nearly any lifestyle. There are many common hardwood flooring types to choose from, ranging from Pine and Oak to Maple and Cherry. However, if you’re interested in a new hardwood flooring option, it maybe worth considering a lesser-known species that can give your home a unique feel. One great option to check out is plantation grown Seringa.
About Seringa Hardwood
Seringa is a native Brazilian hardwood species that is widely cultivated in plantations throughout Southeast Asia and West Africa. The trees are typically harvested after 26 to 30 years of growth. At the time of harvest, each mature tree is approximately 60 to 70 feet tall and 10 to 14 inches in diameter. Seringa is an eco-friendly hardwood that is resistant to warping and cracking. With a dense grain character, it’s one of the more durable hardwood flooring options available. Seringa hardwood flooring comes in a variety of styles and finishes to suit a wide range of homes.
An Environmentally Friendly Choice
Seringa is an eco-friendly hardwood product that has been recognized by Greenpeace in the Good Wood Guide. Good Wood is produced in a well-managed forest or plantation with minimal harm to the environment. Seringa is the only plantation grown hardwood flooring species. Plantations produce wood more efficiently, which allows natural forests to be preserved for biodiversity. When established on previously degraded sites, plantations can return lands to productive use and prevent soil erosion. These factors make Seringa an excellent choice for
environmentally conscious homeowners.
