Eastern White Pine for your Log home?

Eastern White Pine is highly regarded in the building industry for projects that require a high quality appearance and durability. Eastern White Pine not only has striking beauty and affordability, but recognized for its stability. This tree is listed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Wood Products Laboratory as having the least amount of radial shrinkage of any species of wood used as an engineering material.
White Pine grows abundantly throughout the Eastern North America and as the trees are harvested, most are replaced with new seedlings in sustainable "managed" forests.
White Pine is one of the most common timbers used for log home construction in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, and also was once used for ship masts for England's navy.
White Pine heartwood is light brown, sometimes with a slightly reddish hue, and is known for its straight grain and beautiful red knots. Eastern White Pine performs extraordinarily well when compared to other pine species like Southern Yellow Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Ponderosa Pine and Western White Pine. Low shrinkage rates mean log homes made of Eastern White Pine will be stronger and more durable and is rated moderate in decay resistance. White Pine has a uniform texture, mills easily and holds finishes extremely well, excellent for log home construction.
