'Millions of acres of forest have been devastated by the mountain pine beetle that spreads blue stain fungus. This blight takes over trees, killing them, and staining their wood a bluish gray. Due to the treesâ€™ color, commercial loggers and commodity sawmills leave it behind. However, we support salvaging and utilizing this dead standing timber and highlighting its unique aesthetic.' | From TorZo Online
