General Details

Southern Yellow Pine is imported from the United States of America, and is considered as one of the strongest, most versatile species of wood, used by both building professionals, as wells as DIY’s.

Southern Yellow Pine is typically similar to most other hard pines. It has the highest density—between 36 to 42 lbs/ft3 average dried weight—with the minor species ranging from 32 to 36 lbs/ft3 on average. With reddish brown heartwood and yellowish white sapwood, this wood tends to have a fine to medium grain texture.

It contains large and plentiful resin canals, evenly distributed and mostly solitary. The earlywood to latewood transitions are abrupt in this pine, and the colour contrast high. It also has a medium-large diameter. These various species of Southern Yellow Pine are all too similar to be distinguishable, even under a microscope.
