It’s a great feeling when luxurious building materials also benefit your local environment, and this special wood does just that. Averaging $250+ per linear foot, this product is sourced from the forest floors in western parts of the United States.
Beetle Kill Wood is a blue-tinged wood that is widely consumed by the Mountain Pine Beetle, resulting in felled trees and debris that feed forest fires. The removal of the dead trees is beneficial to the environment and the safety of those in the area, and it also a spectacularly unique building material.
