Campground Blue Pine
Sustainable Northwest Wood is proud to partner with small mills that are salvaging beetle-killed pine trees from public parks and campgrounds where the dead standing trees pose a risk to human users.
This exceptional wood features dramatic natural blue streaking throughout the wood. It looks especially beautiful when used for flooring, furniture, countertops, and accent wall and ceiling paneling.
Blue pine can be any species of pine tree that acquires a natural blue stain after being infected by the Mountain Pine Beetle or during the initial decay process following a fire. We call this wood Campground Blue Pine because much of our original supply was sourced from public parks and campgrounds, where the dead standing trees posed a risk to human users and were carefully removed and turned into beautiful, useful wood products.
As those projects wrap up, we are now partnering with additional small mills that focus on salvage projects in fire-stricken areas in Central and Eastern Oregon.
Ask us where yours comes from -- we can tell you the special story behind each piece.
