Alpine Blue is featuring wood from the 2013 Black Forest Fire in Colorado Springs in some of our products. When a pine tree is involved in a fire, the internal sap heats to extremely high temperatures. When this happens the sap scorches the wood leaving behind chocolate brown coloring. You will note in some of our pieces the vanilla, blue and chocolate coloring that is unique to beetle kill, fire scorched wood
We continue to “rescue” wood from trees that have been killed by the pine beetle and/or involved in wildfires.
