The millions of acres of dead pine trees riddled throughout the Western United States and Canada is better know as Beetle Kill Pine. The killer of these trees is the mountain pine beetle which bores into the wood, lays their eggs, and ultimately suffocates the tree by cutting off it’s water and nutrient supply.
The beetle carries a fungus that slowly turns the wood different colors. Commonly know as “blue stain” the colors that appear can range from blue, purple, brown, orange, yellow, red, and pink. The fungal staining is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the structural integrity of the wood.
