About Siberian Larch
Siberian Larch is often a very popular timber batten choice for its appearance. It is regarded as having a very desired finish and provides beautiful colouring and texture. The shapes and patterns of the grain are very aesthetically pleasing and provide real character to fencing panels.
It is a slow growth, high density softwood which makes it one of the hardest commercial softwoods available. It is 50% harder than Scots Pine and this is one of the reasons why it is such a desired timer. This high-density characteristic makes it very durable and perfect for external cladding fencing as well as other features like joinery, decking, and flooring.
Due to this durability, it is a wood that isn’t as vulnerable to knocks, scrapes and scratches as other woods. This is an important aspect for fencing.
