Print this page
 

 

Species: Pinus ponderosa
Sources: Western Canada and USA
Characteristics of the tree: A medium to large tree which can reach 230ft in height. It has a straight trunk and an open conically shaped crown. A typical medium sized tree produces a trunk about 2ft 6in in diameter.
Characteristics of the wood: The wide pale-yellow sapwood is soft, non-resinous and even-textured. The heavier heartwood is deep yellow to reddish brown and is resinous. It can be knotty, with resin ducts that show as the dark fine lines on the surfaces of a board. It is not a durable wood.
Workability: Works well with hand and machine tools, although knots can be difficult, particularly when planing. Glues well.
Average dried weight: 28 lb per cubic ft
Finishing: Takes paint and varnish satisfactorily, but resinous wood should be treated with a sealer.
Common uses: Pattern-making, turnery, doors, furniture (sapwood), joinery, building construction(heartwood).
