Pine Roof Boards

There's about 80,000 bdft of 1" pine roof boards.

Thickness varies from 7/8"- 5/4". Random width 5"-14". Minimum length 4'. Average length 8'. Maximum length 16'.

Packs vary from 750 bdft to 1,500 bdft. All the planks are end-trimmed square.

Most of the planks are obviously circle-sawn.

Mostly de-nailed, but not guaranteed. Some boards have shake nails that are almost impossible to remove. The old nails have left an amazing patina of streaks and colors.

Species include white pine, yellow pine, fir, spruce, and tamarack. Surface colors vary from grey to shades of brown, with streaks of dark or light, and areas stained black. The wood is usually yellow when cut. I can easily call it "yellow pine," but this is more of a description than a technical classification.

The material is stored under cover.
