About Ceiling beam, wood, installation

Wood ceiling panels are generally made from pine, but this once abundant, but now rare, native Florida wood, called pecky cypress, makes a beautiful ceiling. "Pecky" refers to the pockmarks, or elongated holes, that give this wood its unique character. When the bark gets damaged or a branch breaks off, a fungus invades the tree and then works its way up the trunk causing these interesting marks in the wood. The Hirsch's home improvement center special-ordered the wood for them.
