Slabs for Countertops & Tables
There is a “Bug Tree” epidemic which is killing trees in our area.
We are sometimes able to purchase some dead or dying grandfathers for some of the finest finish wood anywhere.
Standing dead Ponderosa Pine usually has ‘Blue Stain’ in the heartwood.
Standing dead Sugar Pine will have blue stain but usually only in the sapwood. When we get a Sugar Pine with blue in the heartwood it is very special – see photos.
For years big saw mills paid less for ‘Blue Stain’ Pine but now a specialty market has grown from the unique and beautiful look of the product.
We usually have slabs in stock 2″, 3″, and 4″ thick, and 16″ to 36″ wide. We can specialty-cut extra long slabs 20′ and more, depending on available stock.
Call for stock on hand.
