Ash Toffee 3-1/4" Prime Grade Semi-Gloss Finish
$4.99 CAD / sq ft
Ash is very similar in look to Oak and slightly more durable. It has a little bit more colour variation and the toffee stain is very warm and comforting. We garnered some publicity over the summer because we are preemptively cutting down ash trees and using them for flooring before they are infected by the emerald ash borer. The emerald ash borer is a tiny beetle that is killing all of the ash trees across North America, so this flooring isn't only an environmentally responsible choice, it may become a part of Canadian history.

Since 2002 the Ash Emerald Borer has been infesting and killing most ash trees in North America. Working closely with our lumber suppliers we have been turning this beautiful wood into flooring. In the normal sustainable harvesting method most of these trees would not be cut but because they are dying there is no alternative. When cutting the smaller trees we are only able to produce normal industry standard lengths of 1-7’.
At this time the supply of ash lumber is starting to be less available. I would expect this trend to continue and as it becomes scarce the price will go much higher
