Celery Top Pine

Add to Wishlist

Celery Top Pine is a common conifer tree from the cooler temperate forests of Tasmania. The softwood timber has tight growth rings giving it exceptional strength and hardness.

In aeromodelling, Celery Top Pine will be best for wing spars and as an alternative to Sitka Spruce with similar consistent flexural strength and slightly harder and heavier properties. The straight grain and good selection give this timber excellent structural properties.

This timber is clean and blonde and will "golden up" with age and sunlight.  When sanded you will find the hardness makes for an extra smooth surface. We use high speed saw blades that leave a smooth and un-burnished finish.

These are the more popular and common sizes; however, we can supply other sizes on demand.

Celery Top Pine

Nice straight grain, good strength, and will make a great main spar

Hi David. Don't you love it when a plan comes together? The Celery Top Pine is a timber we discovered when Sitka Spruce was in short supply and has become a staple for aeromodellers ever since. Good luck with your project and thank you for your review. - Peter

I haven't put the celery top pine to good use yet, but found each piece to be straight and have no flaws, I tested some pieces by bending each way, no breaks so should be good in my spitfire wing build.

Ken - we agree that the Celery Top Pine is a great product! It's just as clean and strong as the traditional Sitka Spruce used by so many over the years. All the best - Peter


Beautiful timber, exceptional grain structure

I really like the Celery Top Pine too Ian! It is, as you say, a beautiful timber. Cheers - Peter
