European Redwood – Pinus Sylvestris

European Redwood is a very popular species for timber cladding, and is also known as Scots Pine, most of which is imported into the UK from Scandinavia. Scandinavia is known for its good quality slow grown redwood all of which comes from well managed forests. This species offers one of the most cost effective solutions for timber cladding, and with its low moisture content and open cell structure is is an extremely good species to pressure treat for protection from decay and insect attack and can be supplied with a 30 year warranty when used out of ground contact. European Redwood is also available in a wide variety of grades from 3 / 4 Side Clear material which is almost completely knotless to a lower grade sixth quality which has large frequent knots.
