What is Siberian Larch Timber?


Siberian Larch Timber is a species of tree grown in arctic conditions and under much duress, although Larch grows faster than most coniferous tree from the same area. It carries much natural resin and is especially resistant to decay. 

Siberian Larch is used for: Cladding, Joinery - Exterior, Flooring, Decking, Sea Defences, Sleepers, Construction, Indoor Gymnasiums, Courts and many more. Most European Larch boarding is imported 100mm and wider, although dimension stock is available, with lengths variable above 2.1m. Grades range from prime unsorted (I-III) grade through to 4ths grade.

The Timber 

The heartwood of Siberian Larch is a pale reddish-brown, which contrasts with the lighter coloured sapwood. This timber has a large resin count with distinguishable annual rings. It also has a straight grain with a uniform texture.

This timber’s heartwood is moderately durable and the narrow sapwood means a lot of the heartwood timber can be recovered for use.

Strength and Durability

The timber is categorised as slightly durable. The heartwood is resistant to preservative treatment and the sapwood is permeable. Siberian Larch is also notably resistant to decay and infestation.
