YELLOW PINE (Pinus spp)

Distribution

North and south of the USA.

General Description

The sapwood of pine is a yellowish white, while the heartwood is a reddish brown, orange, or yellow heartwood. The sapwood is usually wide in second growth stands. Heartwood begins to form when the tree is about 20 years old. In old, slow-growth trees, sapwood may be only 1 to 2 inches in width.

All the southern pines have moderately large shrinkage but are stable when properly seasoned. The heartwood is rated as moderate to low in resistance to decay. The sapwood is more easily impregnated with preservatives. Pine Logs are susceptible to fungus discoloration

Working Properties

Yellow Pine works fairly well with machine or hand tools, although resin in wood has a tendency to gum up cutting edges and can present challenges with gluing.

Yellow Pine ranks high in nail and screw holding capacity pre-drilling sometimes is required to prevent splitting. It machines well but resins in the wood tend to clog abrasives; frequent sandpaper changes are required.

Yellow Pine paints, stains, and varnishes easily, but again, resin bleed-out can be a concern . A wood sealer is recommended to prevent a blotchy appearance when staining.
