Compared to Siberian Larch, British grown Larch is typically warmer in appearance having a rich heartwood colour, it has a greater number of knots and perhaps more grain character.

Knots are brown and can be scattered and frequent, and they may loosen and weep resin for 12–18 months. It will colour down to a silver grey if it is not protected as soon as installation is complete with a good quality semi or fully translucent UV-radiation protective coating. It is a very strong and hard-wearing wood.
