There are a couple of species that fit the description of Yellow Pine (Pinus elliottii and Pinus Caribaea) and they are lumped together here.
Like Radiata Pine it is a plantation timber but grown in the warmer climes, so not a Tasmanian timber as such. We tend to get it in the form of pallets; especially large, heavy pallets (for machinery, etc). It shares many of the properties of Radiata with one big difference – the grain; the patterns are quite pronounced and can look quite spectacular.
As a decorative yet easy to work timber this is very nice; the colours can range from very light to a deep, warm orange. We use it quite a bit in our outdoor products, especially Bird Houses.
