Yellow Pine Wood - Pitch Pine

Yellow Pine Wood - Pitch Pine

(Pinus australis). Pitch pine is the yellow pine of the southern States of America, where it grows to great perfection in the sandy soils of Georgia, Florida, and the Carolinas. The tall columnar trunk of this tree furnishes a most valuable and oft-times a very beautiful wood of a pale yellowish colour, which becomes much richer by exposure for some time. When carefully dressed, this wood polishes in the most satisfactory manner. We have found, in the Liverpool timber-yards, pitch pine having an extremely rich figure; and we have used samples which exceeded the finest satin-wood in brilliancy of golden tint and boldness of figure. Pitch pine is much heavier and harder than the white pine and poplar described above, and, at the same time, it is not so easy to dress.
