A Good Word About Poplar Wood Cores.
Poplar is ideal for wood cores, as it is actually considered a weed which grows fairly quickly in North America with very little effort or resources for growth. Poplar has stable qualities suited for engineering floor cores and can have managed hardwood wear layers adhered to it to cut cost and have less impact on forest crops as it replaces plywoods & utility woods normally cut from hardwoods.
Bambo engineers flooring completely made of that super renewable resource, bamboo, with a mechanical locking system for one of the easiest click together system we have ever worked with. The 12mm floors have cores made from pressed moisture resistant ground bamboo with bamboo strip bracing to help prevent instability associated with solid hardwoods and bamboos. Bambo Floors are thick and heavy and feel like a massive hardwood floor should.

Hickory Hardwood Has The Advantage.
Hickory is rated stronger than traditional Oaks and Maples and competes in hardness with African and South American hardwoods. Hickory has a combination of toughness, hardness and strength unmatched in other hardwoods. Hickories grow abundantly in arid climates in the Southern United States, Mexico and China, some hardly see more than a few inches of rain water per year, yet will withstand harsh environmental and household abuse, making them some of the greenest resources in hardwoods.
