Douglas Fir

This species ranges in colour from light in the sapwood to yellowish-reddish-brown in the heartwood. The grain is defined and has a distinctive grain pattern when flat sawn. The wood is fine to medium texture, straight grain and non-porous.

Douglas Fir has a high bending strength, shear strength and stiffness. It is a hard species and is suitable for use where wear is a factor. The heartwood is moderately decay resistant.

This softwood lumber dries well with good dimensional stability. It machines well and is typically used to make doors, windows, structural products, ladders, flooring, staircase parts, and trusses.

Benefits of Using Douglas Fir:

  • Excellent for supporting heavy weights
  • High bending strength
  • Very resistant to abrasion
  • Quick to dry
  • Excellent reliability for holding screws, nails
  • Finishes well with stains
