What is Scandinavian Redwood?
European Redwood, also known as Scots Pine, Pinus Sylvestris or Scandinavian Redwood, is a very popular softwood specie that is known for its good quality. The timber is imported from forests with FSC or PEFC Certification in Scandinavia and Russia. The quality of the timber is greatly affected by the conditions of growth, climate, soil, elevation and other factors. Its properties make it an ideal species for outdoor fencing when pressure treated.
The colour treatment of these battens is opaque allowing the wood grain to be visible through the attractive brown colour. This colour is applied as part of the pressure treatment process and is not the natural colour of the wood.
The battens are normally darker when the battens are new, this is because battens take a few weeks to dry out after treatment. Once the battens are fully dry you can apply a UV protector to protect the colour and prevent it fading. See our woodcare section for UV protection stain.
