Truly a gift from nature, our Eastern White Pine (EWP) is ideal for interior and exterior projects requiring quality, durability and a warm appearance.  Unparalleled versatility enables EWP to blend seamlessly with countless contemporary and traditional themes.

Used as ship masts during colonial times, tall Eastern White Pine trees were axe-marked with broad arrows for exclusive use by the British Navy.  The light weight and incredible strength of EWP and its other qualities - fine grain, varied appearance, easy workability, stability and compatibility with many finishes - have made it a favorite of North American craftsmen for more than 300 years.

Today Eastern White Pine is used in a broad range of interior and exterior applications.  These include interior paneling and patterned wainscoting, flooring, moldings, stair treads, exterior siding, shelving, and furniture.  This excellent wood is also used in wooden crates, reels and other industrial packaging.

Why Eastern White Pine Is The Natural Choice

  • Has a fine grain, uniform texture and handsome red-knotted appearance
  • Is soft, easily shaped and dimensionally stable
  • Can be finished clear, stained or painted
  • Is naturally decay resistant
  • Has less resin than other pines
  • Is lightweight and easy to handle
  • Fits many interior and exterior applications
