French Oak Heritage
Species: Quercus robur
Heritage has a timeless beauty that brings a mixture of warm brown notes and grey tones to the French Oak.
French Oak flooring has an elegance that is hard to find in any other
flooring product. It’s appeal hasn’t diminished over the years, and with the development of Lifewood’s extra long and extra wide floorboards, it is now in even higher demand.
French Oak is generally considered to be superior to other oak varieties: it has a higher tannin content, which in turn gives more colour variety; it has a tighter grain structure, meaning it is far more dense and it’s also a more stable timber, perfectly suited for Australia’s harsh climate.
Lifewood sources French Oak from a few trusted, well-managed
plantations in France, including the Troncais forest, one of the finest in Europe which supplies sustainable French Oak from 200 to 250 year old trees. All our sources are PEFC accredited to ensure only sustainable sourced timber is used in the production of Lifewood French Oak floors.
