Pine is a very soft domestic wood species, known for it's variety of small to large knots and yellowish tint. With a Janka Hardness Rating of 690-870, Pine is not recommended for homes with big dogs, or where heavy traffic is expected, for not much force is required to dent the wood. Due to these reasons, Pine is not in great demand (especially as pre-finished flooring), and thus many manufacturers choose not to offer it as a hardwood option. One of the positives to this species of wood is that it fits into a country setting very well, generally appearing in wider than normal plank widths. As with all wood species, there are both positives and negatives that should be considered when making a decision on which hardwood option is best suited for your home, but the most important thing is whether or not you will be pleased with your choice after a few years.
