The best quality and color, guaranteed!
Unlike most beetle kill pine on the market, ours is much different. We literally hand select salvaged old growth beetle kill Ponderosa Pine versus the commercially harvested lodge pole pine most commonly found on the market. The average age of our beetle kill pine range from 100-400 years old. The longer a tree stands dead in the forest the more dramatic the color will be. Commercially logged blue pine commonly found in your local lumber yard is typically cut within 1 year of its death because it was targeted for commodity lumber with little to no blue stain.
At Sustainable Lumber we harvest the larger diameter Ponderosa Pines left behind because only about 50% of fiber is usable and typically contain an array of colors. These trees are typically standing dead for up to 5 years. All our timber is harvested for specialty products, not the commodity lumber you’ll see in a lumber yard.We are the only blue pine supplier that hand selects for size, color, and character. If you’re looking for a true sustainable wood product with beautiful color variations and the best quality on the market; you’ve came to the right place! If you only care about the cheapest price, you don’t desire a multitude of colors, and you don’t care about sustainable forestry; we encourage you to look elsewhere.
