What is European (Scandinavian) Redwood Timber?

European Redwood Timber (also referred to as Scandinavian Redwood Pine) is imported from Sweden, Finland and Russia. The grades vary for different uses. Knots are common in the timber, but their size and quality vary according to the part of the tree from which boards are converted.

Scandinavian Redwood Timber is used for: Joinery - Exterior and Interior, Skirting, Architrave, Dado, Furniture and many more. The diameter of such pines normally results in board widths of 100mm - 225mm. Edge-glued panels are imported in large volumes for pine furniture manufacturers, with lamination widths usually about 45mm.



The Tree

Latin name Pinus sylvestris.

Also known as Scots pine (UK), Baltic redwood, Finnish redwood, Archangel redwood, Russian redwood, Polish redwood, red deal, yellow deal. 

The tree is generally 30m high with a diameter of about 1m but larger trees may be found on favourable sites.


The Timber

The sapwood is creamy-white to yellow in colour, narrow, especially in northern environments, becoming wider in the southern areas, and the heartwood is pale yellowish-brown to reddish-brown, resinous, and usually distinct from the sapwood.  The growth rings are clearly marked by the denser late-wood.  The quality of the timber is affected by the conditions of growth, climate, soil elevation, etc, more than most timbers because of its wide and varying distribution, and these factors affect the texture, density and size and number of knots.  The weight of dried timber is about 510 kg/m³.


Strength and Durability

For its weight, European Redwood is strong and moderately hard, although UK plantation-grown timber is slightly softer and weaker than that from other sources.

European Redwood is slightly durable. 


Physical Properties

In general, the timber works easily and well with both hand and machine tools, but ease of working and quality of finish is dependent upon the size, and number of knots, and the degree of resin present.  The wood is capable of a smooth, clean finish and can be glued, stained, varnished and painted satisfactorily, and takes nails and screws well.
