PINUS PONDEROSA

A very beautiful tree, with wonderful, extremely long needles

COLOURS

The heartwood is fresh, from off-white to yellow, and depending on the type, discolouring from straw yellow to light-brown with a pink hue. The sapwood is off-white to light yellow, only slightly lighter than the heartwood. The colouration depends on the type, soil quality, drying method and lighting.

OTHER INFORMATION

The knots are mostly fixed and intergrown. The wood typically has a pleasant turpentine smell. Due to the contrast between early wood and late wood, quarter-sawn wood has a distinct striped pattern, whereas the flat sawn wood has a flame pattern. Resin ducts are present in varying numbers and visible as fine-grain dark-brown lines, especially in the heartwood.

APPLICATIONS

Ponderosa pine is imported regularly for the furniture industry and for wide floor boards. Pine furniture is often made from this wood species. Other common applications are, among other things: interior construction wood, stairwells, window frames and door frames, frameworks, construction (e.g. for restoration work), body work (interior carpentry), wagon floors, bridge construction, piano keys, etc.
