Sugar Pine



Sugar Pine is the aristocrat of the White Pines. Sugar Pine is harvested out of Northern California and Oregon. The Sugar Pine used by MAR-K contains excellent widths and lengths. Sugar Pine ranges in color from a white color in the sapwood to a manila color in the heartwood. There is very little distinction between the heartwood and sapwood. Sugar Pine lumber has a great deal of decay resistance and is suitable for many exterior uses. Sugar Pine has a very fine grain with a uniform soft texture. Sugar Pine lends itself very well to working with hand tools and is one of the best if not the best carving woods. Sugar Pine is most commonly used in the manufacture of doors, sash, architectural millwork, pattern making, and wood carving.
