Source Location: Originated in Europe and Russia; sourced Island of New Zealand

Stability: Stable

Durability in Ground: Moderately Durable

Durability Above Ground: Durable

Density: Approx 550kg/m3 (at approx 12%MC)

Dimensions: Most Larch is plantation grown giving it only 25-30 years growth before being milled, therefore, the standard sizes cut are 200x50 and under.

Grade: Although it comes in a clear grade, it is not as readily available as the No.1 and dressing grades.

Tips: If being used for exterior cladding, heartwood must be selected.
