Siberian Larch is a softwood species that is grown in the Irkutsk region of Siberia. The colour tones of this timber are predominantly light golden browns, slightly darker than typical tones associated with Pine.
Siberian Larch grows in very harsh climates through long, cold winters and short, hot summers. These conditions lead to slow growth resulting in a high proportion of latewood in the tree. Latewood has very dense grain, which makes the timber more resistant to impact or abrasion.
This species is the hardest of all commercially available softwoods and has a Janka scale score of 1100lb/in2, European redwood has a score of 480lb/in2.
All of our Siberian Larch is sustainably sourced from well-managed forests and carries the FSC certification.
