Siberian larch comes from the area bordering the Arctic Ocean. Thanks to the extreme climate, the Siberian larch grows considerably slower than its European counterpart. As a result, the structure of the wood is much more homogeneous, making it highly durable (class II-III).
Siberian larch is a hard and heavy wood type with a firm structure and a colour that varies from light yellow to salmon pink. With flat annual rings and a flat grain one can see a clear flame pattern.
