Douglas Fir (Oregon)
Douglas Fir, also called Oregon, is grown in sustainable plantation forests throughout New Zealand and is a medium density softwood that is widely used in the New Zealand construction industry.
Douglas Fir is a highly regarded timber that is preferred by many users for its superior strength, stiffness, stability and durability over other construction lumber.
Because Douglas-fir has high natural resistance to moisture and decay, it can be used in many building applications without being chemically treated. This means much of the wood inside the home can remain ‘natural’ and free from man-made additives or treatments.
When you build with Douglas-fir, you’re choosing a popular building material that has inherent natural advantages, comes from a sustainable plantation programme with environmental benefits and offers real flexibility and opportunity in construction terms.
