Uses: Light timber framing, exposed post, beam construction, fencing and pergolas
Tips: A major advantage over Radiata is that the wood density and strength does not decrease near the pith, and therefore framing timber can be sawn from much smaller logs including thinnings. It also does not need to be treated with preservatives although it can now be treated H1.2 primarily for framing. It has a low moisture content and dries with little distortion. Its long fibre length means better structural strength qualities.
