The mountain larch wood for our sawn timber products is solely drawn from higher altitudes in Austria. It is particularly popular due to its extremely fine fibres caused by extremely slow growth (approx. 350 years) possible in harsh alpine conditions. The narrow year rings and closure of pits in the sap conductors make the mountain larch resistant to decay. This is a quality not even the flatland larch can match. During the natural process of tree growth heartwood substances spread into the wood. If this has occurred to a sufficient degree the wood is suitable for use in contact with earth; something our employees can identify due to the presence of a dark red colouration in the wood.
