Idaho White Pine is a straight-grained, soft and even-textured wood.
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.
Standard grade is often used for pattern. This grade is also important for building purposes where appearance and strength are desired. With characteristics limited to assure a high degree of serviceability, this grade is often used for shelving, paneling and siding and is especially suited for fences, boxes, crating, sheathing and many other industrial uses.
