Char Beetle Pine

Reclaimed and Repurposed Beetle Kill Pine

Delta is proud to introduce our new line of interior cladding products utilizing dead-standing Beetle Kill pine trees from the Western U.S. and Canada.  Beetle Kill Pine offers a rustic, blue-streaked cladding product in its raw, unfinished state. Once textured, burned and stained, the finish options become extensive and the natural “worm holes” in the wood only add to its distinctiveness.

Hidden Door + Wood Walls with Matt Risinger

When designing his new office, Matt Risinger, of Risinger Build and Build Productions, chose Char Beetle | Smoke, a sustainable, charred Beetle Kill Pine paneling option. Check out the video to learn about how we created the dark, smooth finish and why we work with Beetle Kill pine; as well as best practices when designing and installing interior wood paneling.

WHY HARVEST BEETLE KILL PINE?

  • Colorado State forest service’s annual report estimates one in every 14 standing trees in Colorado is dead
  • Presence of standing dead trees increases severity of forest fires
  • Beetle Kill Pine is the same quality and just as useful as live lumber
  • There is more pine than removal teams and local mills can take
