radiata pine

Character

Has little dulling effect on cutters, which must have thin, sharp edges. Tearing can occur around knots. Holds nails well and gluing is satisfactory.

Color

Has large, wide pale-colored sapwood which is distinct from the pinkish-brown heartwood. The growth rings show less contrast than other pines, resulting in a relatively uniform texture. Resin ducts appear as fine brown lines.

Usage

Building and general construction, crates and boxes. Dressing grades can be used for joinery.
