The new pellet mill is up and running in the new building. We have hardwood pellets for wood pellet stoves for sale and many customers say that these pellets burn hotter than others and cleaner - requiring less ash removal and window washing. That's a good thing.

In 2002 we started burning our wood chips to provide heat for the manufacturing plant, the kiln drying chambers and the lumber storage rooms. There was still extra kiln dried post manufacturing chips which is now used to make pellets. We also grind our waste wood into chips and sawdust to increase the pellet supply.

As part of our effort to be an environmentally sustainable manufacturing plant, we create minimal waste by turning all sawdust into wood pellets.

Finewood Flooring has introduced Honduras Pitch Pine into their product line. This species of Pine (Pinus oocarpa) is similar in grain pattern and colour to Southern Heart Pine. The grain pattern is straight, the sapwood varies from yellowish to brown, and the heartwood is reddish brown.

Honduras Pitch Pine is a very hard Softwood, in fact it is harder than Black Cherry or Black Walnut which are hardwoods commonly used for flooring. Honduras Pitch Pine is three times as hard as Eastern White Pine, which grows in Nova Scotia.

We offer Honduras Pitch Pine flooring in 4-side tongue and groove, with a micro-bevel edge. The Pitch Pine flooring is pre-sanded so you only need to lay it and finish with finish of your choice. Lengths are exceptionally long - the lengths range from 20" to 10' with an average of 6' ! Our Country Grade is the most popular and it has colour variation between the heartwood and the sapwood, and it also contains stable knots which add to the country look.
