Tesoro Woods was founded by William Jopling, or more commonly known as Jop. Jop was one of the great visionaries and innovators of the wood flooring industry and a serial entrepreneur, opening Tesoro Woods in 2009. Tragically, seven years later, Jop passed away, leaving behind his hardwood flooring legacy. Now, it’s been almost a year after his passing and we honor our founder by revitalizing one of his main companies. Learn more about Jop’s life and our full story on the Our Story page.

Where does your wood come from exactly?

Tesoro Woods sources our wood from controlled, sustainable forests in North America. More specifically, the majority of our wood veneers are harvested in Canada and the Northern United States. Our exotic species in the Great Southern Woods Collection are sourced throughout Central America and South America.

Where are your flooring products milled?

We use a controlled, eco-friendly wood flooring mill that is located in Central America. Our mill is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), as it follows meticulous, sustainable milling techniques to produce Tesoro Woods’ beautiful, certified, eco-friendly wood flooring.

What makes your products eco-friendly?

Our wood flooring products are eco-friendly for a variety of reasons. The most important reason is we source our wood sustainably. Tesoro Woods uses wood that comes from a salvaged, reclaimed, or recycled source, or is harvested from forests or plantations. We never greenwash our wood flooring products and our products are certified by the current industry leading third party certifying organization, the FSC®.
