Select Series: Elm Derby

Light in color with heartwood ranging from light tan to a medium reddish-brown, Elm has a straight long grain pattern and very attractive figure.  American Elm was the most widely planted shade tree from the Civil War until the early 20th Century.  In fact, during the 1876 Centennial, Americans planted American Elms by the tens of thousands in their yards as a tribute to the Liberty Elm that George Washington and our founding fathers met under prior to the American Revolution.  By the 1970's, the American cities elm populations were devastated by the Dutch Elm Disease.  Now, true American Elm, just as Chestnut, can only be reclaimed from old barns and rural structures, making it a rare and unique wood floor.
