Pine Wood

Pine is found in almost every forest region, and is as plentiful as oak. It furnishes one-half of the total lumber supply of the country. There are two large groups, the white and the yellow; and the properties are as marked as the species.

White pine is even-grained, soft, and easily worked, resembling spruce and cedar. It is used for kitchen cabinets, washing machines, pails, refrigerators, and most interior work.

Yellow pine is the heaviest, hardest, strongest, stiff-est, and toughest of soft woods, and is in demand for general building purposes.
