Softwoods
 
Pitch Pine
 
Pitch Pine's heartwood is orange to reddish-brown in colour. Used in heavy construction work Description Pitch Pine's heartwood is orange to reddish-brown in colour and resinous. The growth rings are clearly marked by the contrast between the light earlywood and darker, more dense latewood, giving a coarse texture, especially in rapid grown timber. The weight varies between 660 and 690 kg/m3 (41-43lb/ft3); specific gravity .67. Properties Pitch Pine has identical strength properties to...  Read more
 
Southern Yellow Pine
 
White to yellowish sapwood, yellow to reddish-brown heartwood. High density gives it natural strength, weight and wearing resistance. Used for construction, furniture and joinery Description The sapwood is narrow in the better grades, sometimes up to 50mm wide, lighter in colour than the heartwood which is yellowish-brown to reddish-brown. Both species are typical of the hard-pine class, being resinous, with the growth-rings usually well-marked by the contrast between the light-coloured...  Read more
 
Western Red Cedar
 
Western Red Cedar is straight grained with a colour maturing down to a reddish-brown and, in time, to silver-grey – this weathered appearance sometimes sought-after by architects. Description Western Red Cedar is straight grained, rather coarse textured, with a prominent growth ring figure and non-resinous. The timber's heartwood shows considerable colour variation when fresh, from a dark chocolate-brown to a salmon pink colour, perhaps variegated, maturing down to a reddish-brown and,...  Read more
 
Siberian Larch
 
Pale red-brown to brick red in colour, with clearly marked annual rings. Used for doors, window frames and flooring Description The resinous heartwood is pale red-brown to brick red in colour, with clearly marked annual rings. The wood is straight grained, contains knots, and has a fine uniform texture. Weight about 590 kg/m3 (37 lb/ft3); specific gravity .59. Properties Air dried timber is about 50% harder than Baltic redwood, and slightly stronger in bending strength and toughness,...  Read more
 
Thermowood
 
Thermowood is produced by steam heating premium quality pine sourced from Finland, making it ideally suited for use as an external cladding material. Description Thermowood is produced by steam heating premium quality pine sourced from Finland, to temperatures in excess of 212 centigrade. The heat penetrates to the core of the wood, driving out moisture and resin and eliminating leakage through knots. Clear pine has no visible knots on the face and two edges, which is what differentiates...  Read more
 
Douglas Fir
 
Douglas Fir's heartwood is a light reddish-brown shade. Used in heavy construction work Description Douglas Fir's heartwood is a light reddish-brown shade, and the contrast between earlywood and latewood provides a prominent growth ring figure which shows as an abrupt colour contrast on plain sawn timber and rotary cut veneers. The timber is straight grained but sometimes with wavy or spiral grain and with a uniform medium texture. Weight 530 kg/m3 (33 lb/ft3); specific gravity...  Read more
 
Hemlock
 
This species ranges from Alaska southward along the whole British Columbia coast, and is also found in the interior of British Columbia in certain areas of heavy rainfall. It extends into northern Washington, Idaho, and to the western slopes of the Cascades. Description Neither the tree nor the timber bears close similarity to eastern hemlock. The timber of western hemlock is pale brown in colour and somewhat lustrous, with a straight grain and fairly even texture, non-resinous and...  Read more
