Pine

Plus_blauw

Pine, like deal, is one of the most commonly used softwoods that comes in many different grades. Depending on the required quality, Lemahieu Timber Import will select this pine timber from sawmills in the far north (Northern Europe and Russia). The colder the climate, the more stable and dimensionally stable the timber.

 

We attach great importance to sustainable and responsible forest management. Therefore, pine from Lemahieu Timber Import always has FSC® or PEFC® certification.

Whitewood (Deal)

Plus_blauw

Deal is one of the most commonly used softwoods that comes in many different grades. Lemahieu Timber Import imports this spruce timber from sawmills in the far north (Northern Europe and Russia).

 

The colder the climate, the more stable and dimensionally stable the timber. We attach great importance to sustainable and responsible forest management. Therefore, Lemahieu Timber Import’s deal always has FSC® or PEFC® certification.

Douglas

Plus_blauw

Douglas is one of the hardest softwood species and very suitable for indoor as well as outdoor applications. Our suppliers of Douglas in France ensure a sustainable balance and responsible forest management.

 

Our CE-marking means that we guarantee the best quality. To protect Douglas against, for example, wood rot and wood-destroying fungi, we can give it preventive preservation treatment by means of immersion or impregnation.

Siberian larch

Plus_blauw

We work with our regular, reliable partners in Siberia for the import of larch (100% traceable timber!) We strive to always purchase the best possible quality.

A straighter fibre run increases the timber’s density and ensures a more stable product. A dimensionally stable board is much more hard-wearing and easier to machine.
