What the heck is Beetle Killed Pine?

Posted: October 7, 2019

Beetle Killed Pine is the term used for Pine trees killed by the Mountain Pine Beetle.

This tiny little beetle has killed over 100 million acres of trees across the U.S. and Canada.

The beetles bore into the tree, lay their eggs, and cut off the flow of nutrients & water, killing the tree from the inside out.

A fungus from the beetle is introduced into the tree and discolors the wood with a distinct blue tint. The blue tinted wood is not damaged and is still structurally sound as long as it’s harvested within a couple years.

Instead of letting these trees rot on the stump, we salvage them and produce the highest quality wall paneling and flooring on the market.
