Hardwood Floors carrying the Biltmore® For Your Home brand represent an environmentally responsible choice in engineered or solid hardwood floor. Inspired by America's largest privately owned, single family home and the estate it stands on, Biltmore® For Your Home offers a living legacy to the birthplace of responsible forestry. When George Washington Vanderbilt bought the 125,000 acres to build his country estate in Western North Carolina over 100 years ago the land had been ravaged by over-logging and erosion. Hired by his landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, Gifford Pinchot, the first trained forester to practice in the United States, returned the rolling hills surrounding the estate back into what is today the Pisgah National Forest. For his efforts, President Teddy Roosevelt, appointed Pinchot as the first head of the U.S. Forest Service.
