Campground Blue Pine

Blue Pine is salvaged from beetle-killed pine trees and has a dramatic range of blue-gray coloring that is an artistic expression of Mother Nature by way of sheer devastation. Sometimes referred to as Buggy Blue and Beetle Kill Pine, you will often see cool trails and patterns in the wood left behind by the beetles.

The Mountain Pine Beetle is the most destructive pest in the forests of the West, killing millions of pine trees in Oregon every year.  During the attack, the beetles leave behind a fungus that stains the sapwood in striking shades of blue and gray.  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 were removed for human safety.  Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) is the primary target in our region, but Lodgepole, White, and Sugar Pines are also affected. 

Instead of firewood, we're giving a new life for these dead trees as beautiful, useful wood products like butcher block,  tongue & groove paneling, flooring, trim, and dimensional lumber for furniture.  Each piece is widely varied, with random splashes of blue staining and bug trail character, making the end product truly special and one-of-a-kind. 

We work with a number of sawmills and fabricators throughout Oregon that are turning these salvaged logs into usable lumber and decorative products that are highly sought by designers and do-it-yourselfers.
