The evergreen white pine or ladin belongs to the pine family and is one of the most common conifers. It can reach up to 50 meters and therefore it is the highest local tree in Turkey. The trunk can be up to 2 meters thick. It is characterized by a straight and rapid growth and it adapts easily to its natural environment. These trees can last about 200 years. The white pine wood of the Black Sea is very light light-coloured when untreated and turns into a yellowish-brown when exposed to sunlight. Turkish White Pine can be worked very well and widely used in production of furniture and beehives. White pine is the most common wood used in beehives in the Black Sea region of Turkey where the climate is nearly the same as the UK. Anzer Honey produced in Black Sea in ladin beehives. White pine grows in many parts of the country but especially the Black Sea region. We used Kastamonu white pine in our beehives. Historically this area was called. And was known as the main source of shipyard timber from Romans to Ottomans. We tried to use as much knot free wood as possible. It has small amount of resin and takes many oil base finishes and paintings. Glue bonding and surface treatment properties are good. Even left untreated the white pine very rarely allows moisture to pass through. It is known to be good at ventilation for beehives. The wood is durable on facades. It is mown properly and does not bend easily. You will like the handsome look on your beehive for sure. Sustainability: An ethical corporation.

These beehives are made from 100% natural cedar wood without any edge joining or gluing. We bought the timber from off-cut of a palace decoration. Timber was specially sun dried for 3/4 years to get the traditional outcome. You can sense the wonderfully soft aromatic smell from distance. Our beehives have a lot of personality and the natural knots provide a more rustic look and define the visual character of each of them. Each and every hive is different. You can name them differently as well. Knots in the wood are intact, sound and tight (if there is any issue please let us know). All wood is checked prior to packaging but if you see any capillary cracks please dont worry as they wont get any bigger. Its normal with this wood. As said we did not use any glue or chemicals to fill them in. A brush of teak oil or linseed oil can solve the issue if it occurs in many parts. We are environmentally friendly people. No chemicals were used while making these beehives. These beehives are produced by local carpenters who use traditional methods as well as modern machinery (they dry cedar outside at least 3 to 4 years rather than oven drying them). Each piece is made from a single timber as we did not use machine pressing (edge joining) that involves chemicals and strong glues. Our timber was produced from sustainable forests in Southern Turkey- from the legendary Taurus Mountains (where Santa Claus comes from). You can leave these hives as it is or use linseed or teak oil to give them a fine finish. In home furniture they use these two types of oils. If you have a lot of free time you can do it for fun.
