Siberian larch

Siberian larch is famous for its longevity and high quality. Durability under any weather conditions makes the wood suitable for exterior structures. It is strong, dense and resinous. Unlike most of the other species, Siberian larch does not require additional processing, which makes construction and production easier. Moreover, it does not rot in water, but hardens, and therefore is often used for the construction of underwater structures.

Larch forests cover Western Siberia known for harsh climate, alpine environment and strong winds. The rings of 30 to 40 metre high Siberian larches are very dense, the wood is naturally impregnated with resin and does not require additional processing with chemicals.

The wood of Siberian larch is perfectly suitable for buildings, windows, doors, floors, terraces, finishing boards and furniture.
