We're excited to introduce The Original and Mini Koo in Beetle Kill Pine. Our Beetle Kill Pine is harvested locally from standing dead trees throughout Colorado, where the pine beetle infestation has created thousand of acres of dead trees. These dead trees pose a huge fire danger. By purchasing and using the lumber, we are helping to fund the thinning of these trees from Colorado forests. The pine beetle causes gray-blue streaks in the outer layers of wood. This makes for some quite stunning coloration when contrasting with the warm yellow heartwood of the tree.
