European Beech FSC®/PEFC

Back to Products

Botanical Name: Fagus sylvatica

 

Colour whitish or pale brown, if steamed then a reddish brown hue.  Works fairly readily and gives a good finish.  It can move in response to atmospheric changes so, together with its low resistance to decay, renders it unsuitable for exterior joinery.  If steamed then colour changes to pink or light red.
