Bluing and Wormy Description –

Blue Pine, also known as Denim Pine, is predominately found in Ponderosa Pine trees (Pinus ponderosa). The blueing in blue pine occurs when thousands of very small beetles (pine beetle) attacks the tree by boring and burrowing into and under the bark of the tree. The beetles carry a fungus on their bodies which has a slight blue/green/gray color that is carried to the rest of the tree. The bluing is not harmful to humans and will not fade or change over time. It accepts wood stain and finishes well and has no decaying properties to the wood. It is a very popular choice for woodworking projects.

Beetles known as Pine tree borer create the oval and round holes you see in our blued pine lumber. You will also see some of these holes plugged with sawdust and small stringy wood fibers. These need to be stabilized (hardened) in order to get a smooth finish. You can incorporate epoxies and colorants to accentuate or mute these depending on finishing goals.
