Quebec Yellow Pine

Pinus Strobus (Eastern North America)

 

Also known as Eastern White Pine, Qubec Yellow Pine is the tallest conifer in Eastern Canada. Its wood is the least resinous of all pines. A very fast-growing tree, it can reach heights of 90 metres with diameters up to 250 centimetres. Although fast growing it has a very uniform texture and is often used for mouldings, cabinetwork, doors, windows, siding and panelling. Its wood is tender and ranges from creamy white to yellow. It is valued for its very fine tight grain and works exceptionally well. 

 

 

Please note we stock the superior quality "Select" grade.

Russian Redwood  (Limited availability)

Pinus sylvestris (Northern Russia)

Also known as Baltic Pine or Scots Pine, our stocks of European Pine are exclusively from Northern Russia and should not be confused with the inferior faster grown productions of Scandinavia. Timber from these slow growing trees has a finer less pronounced grain, is more stable and easier to work. We have extensive stocks of the best imported grade, known as ‘Unsorted’, which is used for quality cabinet making and architectural and general joinery. In addition to our sawn stocks, we usually keep some sections ready prepared.
