Grey Elm Wood
Above all, there is a huge variety of woods that are found in the world of wood furniture. Cherry, Oak, and Maple are the most popular wood choices for home furniture. As a result, each wood possesses unique qualities and distinct beauty. Most noteworthy, Grey Elm wood is known for its beauty and strength.
Grey Elm, also known as American Elm, is found primarily in the Eastern United States and Canada. It is known for its medium density. As well as its good workability and interlocking grain. Yet its availability has been strained due to the rapid spread of Dutch elm disease (DED). Spread by the elm bark beetle, this aggressive fungal infection chokes the water supply system of the graceful elm tree.
Rehabilitation measures have brought the Grey Elm from the brink of extinction in the 20th century. Hence allowing greater supply for furniture, cabinetry, flooring and other wood needs.
