MTE is Sustainable Provider of Eastern White Pine Lumber  White Pine Tree

White Pine (pinus strobus) is a large pine species native to the Great Lakes Region and Newfoundland. The Menominee Forest’s cool, humid climate is ideal for the growth of this deciduous tree. Once extensively logged in its natural habitat, the Menominee Forest represents one of the few remaining old growth forests containing harvestable levels of white pine.  White pine’s straight trunks were often used in the manufacturing of ship masts in the 18th century.

White Pine’s survival in the Menominee Forest is mainly due to the Menominee Tribe’s traditions of sustainable forestry, which MTE Wood continues today.

Characteristics of White Pine

Eastern White Pine is an easily-workable soft wood with a straight and even grain. Its color varies from a light brown with reddish hue, to nearly white. As the wood ages, the color tends to grow darker. White pine takes staining well and bonds well with glue.

In a free-growth environment, White pine can grow at a rate of four feet per year, making it a sustainable wood resource. It can grow to a height of 60-100 feet high, with a 2-4 foot trunk diameter.
