American 'red' Elm FAS grade is imported from an area on the southern shores of the Great Lakes. This is one of the few areas of the world that has been mostly unaffected by the disease which swept most Elm areas in the past thirty years.
It has a grain and colour which is interesting and pleasant for a variety of joinery uses.
It is stocked square-edge kiln dried in thicknesses 25mm, 38mm, 51mm and 76mm. Widths are random, mainly 100mm - 225mm (predominantly 125mm - 175mm). Lengths variable above 2.4m
It equates to the UK Wych/Dutch Elm and should not be confused with 'common' Elm that for many years was used for sea defence groynes.
