What is a Pine Wood

Pine wood comes from a variety of Pine trees and is frequently used for a variety of construction projects and furniture. Pine's widespread availability, and relative affordability make it a popular choice for cabinetry, window frames, floors, paneling, roofing, and more. Today, pine wood is most commonly used to achieve the retro look of the Knotty Pine furniture that was ubiquitous in the 1960s.

Pine wood is commercially grown on plantations, and it can be cultivated in a way to get the most out its natural properties. For example, by tweaking environmental conditions such as temperature and CO2 levels, cultivators hope to grow pine trees with higher resin content, an advantage that can be useful in certain applications. Relative to price, pine is one of the most durable woods around, which makes it valuable to furniture makers, carpenters, and woodworkers.
