Eastern White Pine/Pumpkin Pine
Reclaimed Eastern White Pine is a soft, gentle wood with coloration ranging from a light blonde to deep chestnut tones. Traditionally associated with the New England farmhouse, this unpretentious reclaimed wood provides an ambiance of warmth and comfort offered by few other species.
Once felled in near-entirety throughout New England and beyond, old growth white pine is now a particularly rare and coveted lumber – especially in the traditional wider-plank format. Virgin white pine has been aggressively harvested since the colonial era, when the British Royal Navy infamously requisitioned particularly fine specimens for use as masts. Today, white pine is farmed, but is sawn for lumber as quickly as possible, giving it an entirely different look and feel than product milled from salvaged old-growth timber.
Longleaf mills white pine in two distinct grades: Rustic White Pine and Pumpkin Pine. Both are milled in square-edge fashion, with widths from 4”-14”. These boards are generally milled to 3/4” thickness and 2’-14’ lengths.
Pumpkin Pine is clean, contains few nailholes, and will finish to a fine golden color.
Rustic White Pine contains more knots, nail holes, and checking to present diverse visual elements of character and use.
Skip-planed white pine is also available.

Extra wide plank floorboards can be made available upon special order.
