“Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky.” ~ Khalil Gibran
At PID Floors, we certainly agree. Trees in our concrete jungle do more than beautify our neighborhoods. They provide us with a wide range of benefits from noise reduction, important support to NYC wildlife, and reductions in carbon dioxide and air pollutants. We hold our green responsibility seriously for nature replenishment. As a responsible member of both the Forestry community and the Hardwood Industry, which values and thrives on the production of trees, we strive to create beautiful hardwood floors sourced from trees cultivated in sustainably managed and certified forests across the world.

They help manage the ecological health of all the green landscapes in the city and maintain the micro-climate of New York. Additionally, they offer financial benefits by aiding the Green Infrastructure in tackling system shortages during extreme weather events and help reduce the carbon footprint.
