Pine – South African

Category: Tag:

Species Description: Wood Species

SA Pine is actually not indigenous to South Africa, but was introduced many years ago.  It is grown in plantations all over and is one of our most cost effective timbers available.  It has low bending and stiffness properties, while crushing strength and resistance to shock loads is low. There is a low blunting effect on cutting edges. The timber takes nails well and gluing is satisfactory. The surfaces, when polished, will provide a good finish.


Sustainability: Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common uses: Construction, joinery, furniture and cabinetmaking and for decorative veneers.

Comments: Most widely sold timber in South Africa.
