RECLAIMED WORMY CHESTNUT FLOORING

American chestnut trees have been virtually decimated, due to a blight caused by an Asian bark fungus in the early 1900’s.  Before the species was devastated it was one of the most important forest trees growing throughout eastern North America.  Today there are few, if any, mature specimens of the tree remaining. During the slow death of these trees they were often infested with small borers, which chewed pin sized holes in the wood, thus giving it the name “wormy chestnut”.  Southend Reclaimed now reclaims this special wood from old barns throughout the eastern United States.  With its subtle hues, worm holes, and random nail holes wormy chestnut has its own distinctive appeal admired by many. Engineered reclaimed wormy chestnut flooring also available.
