Siberian Larch is often a very popular timber 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 timber. 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.

What is Siberian Larch?

There are many types of larch, each belonging to the Larix genus. Siberian Larch is known scientifically as Larix sibirica.

This particular species grows natively as far west as the Finnish border, with distribution eastwards towards central Siberia in Russia — hence the name! The species has also been introduced to Canada, the US, Iceland and Greenland.

Siberian Larch is a ‘frost-hardy’ tree; it’s capable of surviving in freezing, adverse temperatures. When fully grown, it reaches heights between 20 and 50m and has needle-like leaves, with a 1m trunk diameter.

As a result of its extreme native climate, Siberian Larch grows extremely slowly. Interestingly, however, these inhospitable growing conditions imbue the timber with many useful and practical properties, suiting it to many purposes — particularly exterior projects.

Is Siberian Larch a hardwood? Technically, the answer is no — coming from a coniferous tree, it’s officially classified as a softwood. Despite this, Siberian Larch is actually one of the hardest softwoods in the world. As a result of its punishing ‘upbringing’ in sub-zero Siberia, larch has plenty of hardness and natural durability. In fact, it has greater density than many hardwoods!

Once harvested, Siberian Larch starts its life as a golden-yellow wood, but left untreated, will eventually weather to a beautiful silvery-grey

  • Even spread of knots but areas of clear timber.
  • Kiln-dried to moisture content of 16-18% (+/- 2%).
  • FSC Certified.
  • Knots Permitted
  • Sound tight (live / intergrown) knots typically under 25mm diameter, though some may exceed this.
  • Average of two knots per metre over total length of material excluding pin knots.
  • Occasionally knots may be unsound, loose or missing.
  • Sap wood Permitted within grade – Some boards are sap free on the face.
  • Compression wood permitted within grade – occasional.
  • Deformation permitted within grade – Boards with minor curvature and twisting permitted within grade
  • Occasional pitch pockets permitted.
  • Lateral checks and splits are permitted (these do not effect durability of wood)

Siberian Larch is a very popular timber choice for its appearance and durability. It is used widely by Designers and Architects and is considered one of the best timbers for exterior use. The shapes and patterns of the grain are very aesthetically pleasing and provide real character. The colour is normally honey, straw  to  light brown. It looks particularly good when stained with Cedar oil as this enhances the timbers colour or it can be left to naturally age to silver grey.

 

Larch originates from Siberia where the weather is extremely cold. The trees are very slow growing making the timber dense and tight grained with minimal knots. These characteristics make Larch perfect for external cladding, fencing as well as other features like joinery, decking, and flooring.

Larch is not as vulnerable to knocks, scrapes and scratches. This is an important aspect for fencing as it will mean your boundary will be robust and stand the test of time. You can expect your Larch to last between 30 and 50 years.
If you compare this to standard treated softwood fencing you can see that Siberian Larch really is a great option.

Larch does sometimes develop shakes or small splits as the wood dries out, this does not in any way effect the strength or durability of the wood. This is just a natural characteristic of Siberian Larch.

Our Siberian Larch battens and boards are machined in house. We take care to ensure that the Larch we produce is consistent and high quality.
All the work we do far exceeds most nationally accepted standards. When machining natural products there are always variations that occur but these will always fall within the accepted quality controls set out below.
