Eastern white pine offers a uniform texture, shapes easily, stays true to form, and holds finishes extremely well.
Design applications for eastern white pine include interior walls, ceilings, floors, millwork, and furniture, in addition to exterior siding. You’ll find an array of standard patterns and profiles available for use in any style of home, from contemporary designs to historical renovations. Eastern white pine’s interior and exterior versatility, along with ready availability, enhance its popularity for today’s designs.
This wood species has a fine grain and offers designers an endless variety of looks. Eastern white pine heartwood is light brown, occasionally having a lightly reddish tone. Its sapwood is pale yellow to almost white. This wood’s color tends to darken with age.
The species played a significant role in the early beginnings of the U.S. as the primary building material for all things during the growth of the American colonies in the 1600s.
Eastern white pine is adept at naturally reproducing itself. In fact, today, the total forested acreage in New England is greater than it was in the 1930s, thanks to its regeneration ability and smart sustainable management practices implemented by the forest industry in the Northeast. It continues to create a sustainable forest products resource for future generations.
