America is recognised for its high quality, sustainable softwoods. Southern yellow pine is a premium product for external use and is ideal for decking. It combines characterful looks with strength, good impact and wear resistance and the highest nail-holding ability.
A key feature of the species is it's ability to accept treatment with wood preservative in a pressure treatment process where it achieves high penetration levels giving through and through protection.
American Softwoods is a promotional partnership formed by three major US softwood trade associations: the Southern Forest Products Association, the Softwood Export Council and the APA, the Engineered Wood Association
