Character / Color:

The Cembra pine provides the classic wood for romantic country furniture and interior decor in the alpine region. Closely spaced annual rings give the wood a plain texture. The dark late growth produces delicate figures on the tangential surface and light stripes on the radial surface. Striking accents are provided by small to medium dark brown knots grouped in grid patterns. This is the design closely associated with country decor. Sapwood is yellowish white while the heartwood is yellowish brown to light reddish brown.
