Pine wood table Go back
The Stone-Pinewood Tree or Pinus Cembra is the only kind of mountain pinewood found in Europe which boasts five pine needles. It is a very special sort of tree which can be found growing in the wild at an altitude of over 1,200 mts. It infact grows best in the mountain regions where there are the most favourable and suitable conditions for its growth at altitudes ranging from 1,600 mts up to 2,100 mts high. This type of wood is mainly used to make pieces of furniture and typical handicraft sculptures (like the famous ones made in the Gardena Valley). It is also used in food processing methods (such as in the preparation of the notorious “strudel” apple cake) as well as also being used in the production of cosmetics. It is a fairly soft and tender kind of wood and is therefore ideal for being used in the carving of handicraft creations such as those which proudly represent the traditional type of wooden art in the Dolomite mountain range areas.
