REDWOOD PINE

Not all decking is the same, we buy our deck boards that have been machined from timber sourced from northern latitudes. Because the trees in these northern regions grow slowly the wood fibres are closer together. After manufacturing this close packed structure gives the decking its strength. It also means that the timber will expand less as it absorbs rainwater, less movement means less strain against the fixings and reduces the chances of boards twisting, warping or splitting.

The wood of Pinus sylvestris is sometimes called 'redwood' in the timber trade.   Pine cone  
RUSSIAN (REDWOOD) PINE - PINUS SYLVESTRIS

This Pine inhabits Western Europe as well and known there as Scots Pine, however fiber of Russian Pine is better due to different climatic conditions. Dry summers with short vegetative periods induce Russian pine to shade brunches in early stage of bowl development. Thus, lumber recovered of logs of this specie are less knotty. Moreover, wood grain of Russian Pine is fine, dense and has excellent appearance.

Russian Pine is a large coniferous tree standing up to 90-130 feet tall and with a bowl diameter (at the breast height) growing up to 30-50 inches.
