About Beetle Kill Lodgepole Pine Lumber:


Moisture Content:  Because the beetle kill tree is dead standing and has been for many years the moisture content in the lumber off the mill is rarely above 18% and frequently is under 12%.   We do sticker and air dry any material that is above 18% moisture content.

Color:   The blue color that is in the log is found in the outer sap ring of the log so color varies in the lumber depending on where the board was cut from the log.   Wider boards require large logs and typically large logs have small sap rings and produce less color in lumber.   Smaller logs typically have deeper sap rings and produce more color.  The optimal width for color is 8” material and under, 6” and 4” material produce the most color.   We do find more color in Ponderosa Pine for wide boards.

Cracks:  Because the beetle kill log comes from dead standing trees “THEY CRACK”.  We cull out lumber with large cracks that make the board unusable, we do not cull material with minor cracks, it is the nature of the wood.
Standard Grade Pricing:

This material has minimum to no color.  For material 8″ widths and under the cost is $1.10 per board foot, for 10″ wide material the cost is $1.20 per board foot and for 12″ material the cost is $1.50 per board foot.  For material 18′ and 20′ lengths add $.10 to the board foot price.

1′ of 1×12 material = 1 bf    
1′ of 1×10 material = .83 bf   (.83 x $1.20 per bf = $.99 per lf)
1′ of 1×8 material = .66 bf   (.66 x $1.10 per bf = $.72 per lf)
1′ of 1×6 material = .5 bf   (.5 x $1.10 per bf = $.55 per lf)
1′ of 1×4 material = .33 bf   (.33 x $1.10 per bf = $36 per lf)
Double for 2″ material, triple for 3″ material and so on.
