Reclaimed Antique Elm Description:
Light in color with heartwood ranging from light tan to a medium reddish-brown, Elm has a long, straight grain pattern and a very attractive figure. From the Civil War until the early 20th century, American elm was the most widely planted shade tree. In fact, during the 1876 centennial, Americans planted elms in their yards by the tens of thousands 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 elm populations were devastated by 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 for any application.
