Larch: coniferous wood

Larch is one of the strongest species among coniferous trees. It is much stronger than oak. This wood has a brown or red color. It has increased resistance to moisture. Unlike spruce, larch is very easy to handle on machines. It has few branches, but lots of resin. It should be treated very carefully because if it is too heavily dried it can be cracked.

Already cleaned timber is treated with a nitrocellulose varnish. Carvings are most often made of larch and carpenters are used. It is ideal for beams and hydraulic engineering. Electric poles, various equipment for beaches, swimming pools, berths, boats are also made of larch.
