All wood preserved with a mix of linseed oil and turpentine stockholm tar,
The pitch pine is now used for pulpwood, crating, and fuel,
but it played a big role during the days of wooden ships and railroads.
Its wood is rough grained and not very strong, but it contains a lot of resin.
This makes the wood resistant to decay.
The wood was often used for ship building, fences, and railroad ties.
