Pine wood is a frequently used material for fine and economic construction projects alike. The properties of pine make it a popular choice because of its easy cultivation and widespread availability. Pine wood is used in the construction of furniture, cabinetry, window frames, paneling, floors and roofing. Knotty Pine was a popular choice in home decors in the 1960s. That same orange-red finished wood is often used in modern cabinetry to create a retrospective style linked to that décor from before.
When Pine wood is grown, it can be cultivated on plantations to promote certain qualities in the wood like higher resin content. The resin from Pine trees is prevalent in turpentines, but the high resin content can also be an advantage that is also useful in certain construction situations. Pine is more durable than other woods that are of equal cost, like Spruce, which is what makes it so valuable to the carpentry community.
