Whitewood, Spruce (Picea Abies)
Also referred to as European Whitewood, Finnish Whitewood, Scandinavian Whitewood, Russian Whitewood or Norwegian Spruce
Whitewood is straight grained with a smooth and even texture having a colour variation from white to light yellow. The wood fibre has a medium density with excellent strength properties. Kiln dried between 14% and 20% for general carpentry & joinery purposes means that sawing and machining is easy as well as gluing, jointing and assembly.
When used in the building and construction industry, whitewood products are typically structural, such as timber studs, joists & trusses. Other internal uses include flooring, stairs and door linings. Externally whitewood can be used for fascia boards & cladding. However, it is more commonly used for outdoor building construction, landscaping and fencing.
MET sources all whitewood from well managed forests, located within the more northern regions of Europe having either FSC® or PEFC™ certification.
