Pecan is a strong hardwood that boasts shades of light and medium brown with hues of red and yellow. Though the grain is generally straight, the wood can be difficult to work and requires sharp blades to avoid tearout. Because of its strength, shock resistance and coloring, pecan wood makes durable and beautiful flooring. At California Pacific Specialty Woods, we carry a steady selection of live edge pecan slabs listed here that are dried and ready to ship.
