White Pine Lumber Characteristics

White Pine (pinus strobus) is a large pine species native to the Midwest and Newfoundland. The Menominee forest’s cool, humid climate is ideal for the growth of this deciduous tree. Today, the Menominee Forest represents one of the few remaining old-growth forests containing harvestable levels of White Pine.

Eastern White Pine is a sustainable and easily workable softwood with a straight and even grain. Its color varies from light brown with a reddish hue to nearly white. As White Pine wood ages, its color tends to darken. White Pine wood stains beautifully and bonds well. In a free-growth environment, White Pine can grow at a rate of four feet per year and reach heights of 60-100 feet high with a 2-4 foot trunk diameter.

Eastern White Pine hardness is rated as 380 lbf on the Janka hardness scale, making it one of the softest woods. White Pine is a popular lumber for construction due to its accessibility and workability.

The Declining White Pine Population in Wisconsin

According to the DNR, the white pine population in Wisconsin has experienced a dramatic decline over the past few centuries. Once a dominant tree in the northern and central forests, extensive logging during the late 1800s Cutover Period removed most large white pines. This logging, coupled with subsequent fires, severely reduced the occurrence of white pine and limited seed sources for its re-establishment. Although the total white pine volume has more than tripled since 1983, there are concerning signs of continued decline.

The number of white pine seedlings has decreased alarmingly, indicating regeneration issues. While the number of saplings, poles, and sawtimber trees increased significantly since 2004, mortality rates have nearly doubled since 1996. Contributing factors include poor soils, soil compaction, heat and drought stress, flooding, diseases, and pests. The low wood density also makes white pine less desirable for biomass. Proactive strategies like promoting natural regeneration and planting efforts are crucial to sustaining this iconic Wisconsin tree species.
