Yet the logs themselves are just as rigid and harmless as their healthy counterparts – begging the question, “Why use healthy trees with so many already fallen?” It’s true, beetle-kill pine is uniquely grayish-blue in color. But we see this as a pretty cool reminder of its new purpose in an otherwise storied past.
