Red Pine Products Available from Menominee Forest
Menominee Tribal Enterprises Provides Red Pine anywhere in Wisconsin
Red pine is a coniferous evergreen whose trunk grows tall and straight with branches that start further up the tree than evergreens you might imagine. Native to northern Wisconsin, it ranges anywhere from the forests of Minnesota, all the way to eastern Canada. It has a distinct, straight grain & varies in color from light reddish brown, to pale yellow or white. The name is inspired by distinct reddish hues that can be seen throughout the bark. Menominee Tribal Enterprises uses sustainable practices to produce the best quality wood with every tree harvest.
Red Pine’s Workability
Red Pine is notoriously easy to work with. Whether you’re constructing a product or structure by hand or machine, red pine can be easily manipulated the way you want it to be. Because of the relatively low durability, the wood from a red pine is ideal for outdoor structures, including:
- Railroad ties
- Utility posts
- Construction lumber
