Siberian Larch is a very special conifer. While becoming more popular, Siberian Larch is packed with both style and design as well as durability, strength and high quality.
Siberian Larch is mostly used in following applications:
- Façade for private – and public buildings
- Terraces and balconies
- Gardens and playgrounds
- Boat landings and footbridges
- Special structures in contact with the ground
Due to Larch’s density, and a high tar- and resin content, Siberian larch is very durable even without treatment. In fact it’s one of the trees with best weatherproof qualities.
