Littleton, CO (PRWEB) December 1, 2010

A new beetle-kill floor has been installed at Mi Cocina Mexican Restaurant in Littleton, Colorado. It is the first such application of beetle-kill pine flooring in a restaurant in the United States.

Information from The Beetle-kill Trade Association says, “Today we are in a disaster situation demanding immediate unity but it is harder to see since the disaster we are facing is coming at us at a glacier’s pace. We have too much time to discuss it, too much time to analyze it, and too much time to assume that someone else is doing something about it.” Lily Tomlin was once quoted saying, “I always wondered why someone didn’t do something about that. Then I realized I was someone.”

There are 3.5 million acres of beetle-kill pine in Colorado, and Colorado is not alone in this disaster. Trees from Alaska to British Columbia and south through the Rocky Mountain region are being destroyed due to this formidable foe. It is imperative to develop beetle-kill pine products and get new forests growing again. A sad ecological story can be turned into something eco-friendly and beautiful.

Using beetle-kill pine, also called blue-stain wood, fits in with the green-building standard. This unique wood is being used for furniture, log homes, firewood, wood beams, cabinetry, and paneling. The application at Mi Cocina is an innovative use for beetle-kill pine products — on a commercial floor.

The new floor at Mi Cocina, located at at 1600 W Belleview Avenue, is environmentally friendly, not only because of the wood used, but the floors are finished with water base BonaKemi; 1 coat BonaSeal and 3 coats BonaTraffic.

The floor is in a public building so people can come in and see it at any time. Customers are encouraged to install it in their own homes and get even with the Mountain Pine Bark Beetle!
