***A little history tidbit on beetle kill pine***
The millions of acres of dead pine trees throughout the Western United States is better known 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 its water and nutrient supply.
There’s an artistic benefit to the pine beetle infestation. The beetle carries a fungus that slowly turns the wood different colors. Commonly known as “blue stain” the colors that appear can range from blue, brown, orange, yellow, gray, and red. The fungal staining is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the structural integrity of the wood. And that blue, pine-beetle-kill wood is what we use to create our beautiful pieces.
