Eastern white pine (EWP) is tall pine species native to the northeastern United States and eastern Canada valued as a lumber species because it is soft and easy to work with. As an animal bedding, Eastern white pine shavings derived from lumber manufacturing have been kiln-dried to remove moisture and impurities. This premium bedding material is clean, soft, and extremely absorbent. In addition, because it is white in color it won’t stain animals like some other tree species. Finally, EWP shavings are characterized by a fresh pine scent that can help neutralize the odor of animal waste. For all these reasons, Eastern white pine shavings are a premium animal bedding product.
