Eastern White Pine
The Maine woods, its soils, weather and terrain are ideal habitat for Eastern white pine. When sawed and milled, this lumber is considered among the best timber for either exterior or interior applications. This soft, stable wood resists warping, is one of the least resinous of all pines, and has a beautiful red-knotted appearance. Easy to handle due to being light weight, it is also excellent for stain, paint and lacquer finishes.
Eastern White Pine sets the standard for use in building projects that require quality, appearance, and durability. This unique wood species has a fine grain, a variety of "looks", uniform texture, shapes easily for appearance products that require a profile, stays true to form, and holds finishes extremely well.
For centuries, Eastern White Pine has been the mainstay in quality construction and fine woodworking.
