Larch is mostly distributed from Eastern Europe.
Its heartwood has a pale red-brown to brick red colour. It is straight grained containing knots with clearly marked annual rings.
Larch is classed as a softwood that has a medium density and good qualities for steam bending. This timber can be worked with hand tools with a low blunting effect except when in contact with knots where there is a severe blunting effect.
It is generally a fairly rapid drying lumber and can be kiln dried satisfactorily. There is a small amount of movement in service.
European Larch flooring is suitable for all domestic and some specific commercial projects. It is commonly used for a more traditional period look and is sometimes used in cycle velodromes.
