Rustic Beetle Kill Furniture | History of Pine Beetle Wood
A brief biography of pine beetle kill wood furniture includes life details of mountain pine beetles. These mountain pine beetles are a pest that plagues entire pine tree forest regions, causing healthy trees to become infected with a mold that inhibits their ability to retain water and other key nutrients. The mountain pine beetles lay their eggs under the bark of the tree and introduce a blue stain fungus inside the sapwood which repels water and transports other essential nutrients to the pine tree’s health.
After a while, this process kills the tree, which is then utilized for the building of Rustic Beetle Kill Furniture. It is typically most useful about 8-12 years after the tree’s death, but due to the loss of moisture causes a difficult building process and is only most utilized by Rustic Beetle Kill Furniture stores specialized in crafting this style and technique. Overall, repurposing this item for Rustic Beetle Kill Furniture is healthy for the environment as it prevents the possibility of a more widespread infestation and dangers of creating a vast forest fire.
