You shouldn't need new wood. Worst case scenario is you will need to refinish the floor in that area. Refinishing involves sanding, maybe staining, and then a new top finish coat. If the stain is penetrated into the wood this is your likely resolution. if the stain is only on the surface maybe something like "Goof Off" will work if its available in your area.

Clorox bleach works well too. Use plenty of ventilation, clorine is deadly.

You can get a wood bleach kit;that will help you control the amount of bleaching you do--so that you don't go too light and have to sand the whole floor.
