GULF OF RIGA PINE

QUALITY AND SERVICE IS OUR BUSINESS

GULF OF RIGA PINE

Scots Pine has an enormous european distribution, spanning from Portugal in the west out to eastern Siberia. Consequently, there’s also a great amount of natural variability in terms of appearance and quality because of the wide range of growth conditions for this native tree. 

  • Trees from colder Baltic areas tend to produce denser, more finely-textured and high quality wood because of their much slower growth rates.
     
  • Scots Pine tends to be more commonly used for large scale timber production in the northern regions of Europe than when compared to the UK, where the market has come to rely on spruce whitewood for construction use.
     
  • Pine shares a common general wood anatomy and basic chemical composition with other softwood species. 
    However its heartwood is more durable, and it has superior clearwood mechanical properties and wood density when compared to Sitka spruce (the species which is normally favoured by UK markets).
     
  • These properties can enable the production of timber at higher strength classes and in theory, this could also make Scots pine a more desirable component of engineered wood products.
