Goodwin rescues trees which have fallen during storms and/or are scheduled to be cut down due to development. We work closely with foresters and land planners to sustainably harvest this beautiful wood to ensure it is not doomed to waste. One of the species we rescue is wild black cherry.
Wild black cherry primarily grows in the eastern half of North America and Mexico. Goodwin mills sustainably harvested wild black cherry logs into our solid wood flooring and engineered wood flooring. Some argue wild black cherry is more desirable than standard cherry because it often develops arching and/or burled grain patterns, along with slight mineral colors for added beauty. Wild black cherry’s natural coloration varies from deep pink to rich red brown tones.
This short but informative video shows Dan Petersen of Heritage Wood Finish Company pre-finishing a solid wild black cherry wood floor with a low sheen diamond 7 finish for one of our valued clients:
Our friends at The Sustainable Design Group in Gainesville, Florida are the architects for the remodeling of a home in Cedar Keys where the wild black cherry solid wood flooring you see in the video will be installed.
