Compare Species

There are many hardwood and softwood species available in Australia. Some species are better than others for particular applications or locations, and this is dependant on factors such as durability rating, fire resistance, termite resistance, workability and availability. While there is a lot of information available on the properties of timber species, finding the timber that is best suited for a specific application can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

WoodSolutions lets you compare the properties of up to five species at the same time, helping you find the best timber or timber product for your building projects.
