New Zealand Pine

One of its unique properties is its uniform density, i.e. the small variation in density between spring wood and summer wood within a growth ring. It is this property which confers on New Zealand pine its excellent machining, painting and staining properties. Consisting mainly of white sapwood, with prominent fine resin canals, it presents a uniform appearance with little colour variation between pieces. This is an advantage for subsequent finishing. New Zealand pine has unique properties among softwood species, in that total treatment of sapwood is always achievable. It is very amenable to manipulation of preservative treatment processes, which are environmentally acceptable and give a reliable standard of treatment. New Zealand pine sawn lumber is a versatile structural building material which is well suited to the 2 x 4 building system. It is used equally successfully in larger buildings as glue-laminated lumber and for many other structural applications. New Zealand pine has a low shrinkage which contributes to its stability.

Indian Sal

Sal is one of the most important sources of hardwood timber in India, with hard, coarse-grained wood that is light in colour when freshly cut, but becomes dark brown with exposure. The wood is resinous and durable, and is sought-after for construction, although not well suited to planing and polishing. The wood is specially suitable for constructing frames for doors and windows. Sal is also considered most suitable for railway sleepers, piles, beams and other load bearing parts of bridge structures, wheels and bodies of carts and other similar load carriers, including motor trucks, super structure of house tops, etc. In fact Sal wood is most suitable for all such applications where strength and elasticity are foremost requirements, and where polishing is not so very essential.
