Timber cladding species ideal for many internal and external joinery applications. The species is also known as Scots Pine and machines well, however ease of working and quality of finish is dependent upon the size, number of knots, and degree of resin present.

It has excellent machining properties and can be planed to a smooth, clean finish. It can be glued, stained, varnished and painted satisfactorily, and takes nails and screws well. The sapwood tends to be a creamy-white to yellow colour and the heartwood is a reddish-Brown colour, both of which are moderately durable.

30 year warranty against rot and fungal decay out of ground contact (UC 3) if high pressure treated with NORclad Brunnea™ or NORclad Lite™
