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.
