Released in March 2013, the upgraded App offers faster load time, new navigation and more “technical” information on 20 of the most abundant American hardwood species.

In addition to the basics - where it grows, main use, abundance - each hardwood profile includes a general description, working properties, physical properties, availability, workability, and now, strength and mechanical properties.

Shown in clear, light, medium and dark finishes, to help visualize stain combinations of flooring, cabinetry, moulding and furniture co-existing in a single design space, each species profile also includes photos featuring the wood in finished applications.

Located at, the American Hardwood Information Center is the authoritative resource for consumers and professionals seeking information about American Hardwoods. As a service of the Hardwood Manufacturers Association, the Center provides information on selecting hardwood species and building with American Hardwood products. It also offers advice from industry experts on decorating, care and maintenance and design trends. The Center’s goal is to promote the use of American Hardwoods in home and building products ranging from flooring, cabinetry and millwork to furniture and building materials.

Ratings and Reviews

Great App


I don't review apps. But this one is nicely done. I will use this app often when shopping my hardwood store.

I especially like the swipe images of common Collora and grains of the American Hardwoods.

Nicely done DevTeam!


Old n in YOUR way

There isn't a single type of wood that could be positively identified from the examples in this app. Hard to believe so see for yourself.

Not worth the time...


Takes way too long to load for the small amount of info provided. No more than 3 pics per wood type. Basic, not useful info provided for shopping for cabinets & floors.
