It is light in color, varying from nearly white to pale, reddish brown. Color is uniform across the heartwood and sapwood. Knots occur in a radial pattern. Resin content is the lowest of the pines and resistance to decay is the highest - making Idaho White Pine an excellent choice for exterior trim applications.
The splendid workability of Idaho White Pine with either hand or machine tools is axiomatic in the woodworking field. It is free of any tendency to split or sliver and it is famous for its workability across or with the grain.
Colonial is the ideal grade when the ultimate in natural knotty pine characteristics are desired.
