Suitable for many situations where you might use Oak but at a considerable lower price. Larch like Douglas Fir is a good all-rounder. Good for profile cladding (externally and internally), decking, flooring, joinery, furniture work.

British Larch Appearance

It's worth noting home grown British Larch traditionally has more live knots than imported larch. The knots adds to its character.

British Larch is fairly straight-grained with strong and clear annual growth rings. The timber has a warm, pale orangey colour, sometimes going into a pale pinkish red.

The heartwood is pale reddish-brown to brick-red in colour, sharply distinct from the narrow, lighter coloured sapwood. A straight grain timber with a fine consistent texture.

Timber is a natural product therefore the products we supply has variations in markings, shape, colour, size, texture. The Seller neither guarantees nor warrants that such variations will not occur, or that the Goods will conform to any sample either in markings, size, shape, colour and general quality.

Can be left untreated and will "silver/grey" unless a UV oil is applied which will delay the greying process. british-larch-front-2

Durability

When selecting your timber type for your project it is worth taking in to consideration BS EN 350 timber durability class.

Durability is the ability of a species to resist decay either naturally or through preservatives. The Class is based on the ability of the heartwood (inner part of the tree) to resist fungal decay. The sapwood (the living outermost portion of the tree)is considered not durable and should not be used for external projects without preservative.

BS EN 350 has 5 classes of durability they are:-

Class 1 to 3 can be left as untreated timber, a natural ageing process will accrue e.g. Larch will turn a grey colour. Class 4 and 5 will need to be treated with preservatives.
