Although not a true pine, Norfolk Island Pine is similar in appearance. The color is light brown, with variations leaning toward yellow or red. Sometimes, the wood is marked by blue-gray fungal staining, which can be desirable for aesthetic purposes. When present alongside contrasting red knots, this staining can be especially striking. The wood grain is mostly straight with a uniform texture and a moderate natural luster.
Norfolk Island Pine is a relatively soft wood, making it easy to fashion into just about any form you wish. Common applications include furniture and small wood carvings.
We salvage Norfolk Island Pine trees from land-development projects, giving the logs new life as live-edge slabs. These slabs are perfect for adding a bit of rustic charm to your next home décor project.
