RECLAIMED BALTIC PINE TIMBER
We are currently sourcing large volumes of consistent sizes and standards of Baltic Pine, a cousin of the famous Oregon pine. Baltic Pine is extremely stable, straight and strong. All three of these features are not what our local South African Pine is renowned for. We continually have new customers changing over to our Reclaimed Baltic in preference to our local pine.
Using our Reclaimed Timber for your project has numerous benefits. Saving your cash and the planets resources at the same time is a real everybody wins story! Our customers have helped us save tens of thousands of tons of timber forests.
We have many good reasons to support the idea that our Reclaimed Baltic Pine imported from Europe is superior to our local Pine. Baltic Pine is slower growing and therefore stronger, more stable, has an exceptional decorative pattern and consistent colour.
We stock a huge range of section sizes and component lengths. Our Reclaimed Timber has character, is well settled in nature, stable and has withstood the test of time.
Our Reclaimed Timber is extremely stable, straight and true because it is well cured and has had a chance to adapt to the environment over a lengthy period of time. Freshly cured timber, even if it is kiln dried, may twist and turn as it undergoes the process of settling in to the environment it ends up in.

Baltic Pine, AKA Norway Spruce, is grown throughout Europe from Norway in the northwest and Poland eastward, and also in the mountains of central Europe, southwest to the western end of the Alps, and southeast in the Carpathians and Balkans to the extreme north of Greece. The northern limit is in the arctic, just north of 70°N in Norway. Its eastern limit in Russia is hard to define, due to extensive hybridisation and intergradation with the Siberian spruce, but is usually given as the Ural Mountains.
There can be a beautiful variation in the colour of Baltic Pine. From a light beige with a hint of yellow to a rich reddish brown, sometimes including a combination of both. Its grain is generally straight and is considered a close grain timber, strongly resembling that of Oregon Pine. It has a very fine texture, aesthetically appealing and full of character. The weight of the wood is about 500 kg/m3 when dried but can vary depending on certain environmental factors.
The timber is great to work with, being both not too hard and not too soft it can be worked easily. It is capable of a smooth, clean finish and can embellish a variety of techniques and finishes. It takes stain, paint, varnish ,wax and a variety of different glues extremely well with little to no hassle when applied correctly. Additionally, drilling and fastening with both screws and nails is a breeze leaving all the more room for whats important, your creativity!
