Spruce wood comes from the Norway spruce and is the most commonly used wood type in the Netherlands. The structure of the wood has small round knots with a light drawing. The wood is easy to process and relatively inexpensive. Untreated spruce wood has a whitish and pale colour and a durability class of 5. Impregnated spruce has a light green colour and a durability class of 3-4.
The service life for above-ground use is approximately 10-15 years if the wood is impregnated with boiler pressure.
The differences between ME (Central European) spruce and NE (Northern European) spruce:
In Northern Europe, including Scandinavia, spruce grows much slower, so the wood has a denser structure with smaller annual rings and smaller knots. This is one of the reasons why the price of Central European spruce is somewhat lower than the wood from Northern Europe.
