Softwood Timber Applications and Characteristics
Softwoods are used for a great wealth of different applications, from the construction industry right through to high class joinery. Most softwood timber is available far cheaper than any hardwood, this is why it is so often used. The fact that most softwoods grow much faster than hardwood may contribute to their comparative cheapness, they are easier to obtain, and tend to have less impact on the environment. Conversely though, preservatives are often use offsetting the environmental advantage.
Like hardwood, softwood species such as British Western Red Cedar lend themselves to particular applications depending on their inherent qualities. European softwood is used due to its abundance and cheapness, Cedar for its durability, Douglas fir for it strength, and Quebec yellow pine for stability. In many instances softwood is the preferred choice over hardwood for these very reasons. Western red cedar is widely used for cladding due to its durability not to mention its light weight and workability.
Softwoods are conifers, which can be identified by their cones and needle-like leaves. A few examples would be pine trees and redwood pine trees.
