If you are familiar with our products, you’ve probably seen or heard about the infamous beetle kill pine by now. It’s an unmatched material with its hues of blue and hints of character like no other. Beetle kill pine, also referred to as blue stain pine, has become vastly popular throughout the years in terms of adding personalized and unique design to any indoor or outdoor space.
Beetle kill pine gets its distinctive look from blue stain fungus that spreads from bark beetles to Lodgepole Pine, Douglas Fir, and Whitebark Pine trees. The fungus works with the beetles to turn the tree into nutrients. This unfortunately kills the trees over time, but provides us with beautifully streaked natural wood to salvage and display. During the kiln drying process, the fungus is burnt away. Leaving the product as a clean, affordable, eco-friendly, and stunning piece of lumber.
