Examples of Hardwood

Hardwoods are heavy grain timbers with great tensile strength. They're used in construction and top quality furniture. These timbers are used for their long lasting characteristics and resistance to termites and rot. They're typically used in structural supports and flooring.

Examples of hardwoods include:

  • Beech
  • Oak
  • Maple
  • Cherry
  • Holly
  • Boxwood
  • Mahogany
  • Teak
  • Ebony
  • Walnut
  • Ash
  • Elm
  • Hickory
  • Birch

These tend to be deciduous trees, reproducing by flowering. Some are slow growing, and lack support from plantation production methods, which is putting pressure on native populations.

The major market appeal of hardwoods is their ability to be finished into elegant forms which show off their fabulous grains. Some are used in purely decorative forms, like oak paneling. Exposed beams are another design form, where the structural elements are also décor.
