Hoop Pine [Araucaria cunninghamii]

 

Probably one of Australia’s most versatile timbers. Growing along the Queensland coastal ranges and Northern New South Wales, virgin Hoop was sought and sawn from early sawmilling days.  Today only plantation timber is available from a limited number of mills in South East Queensland and the Atherton Tableland.

 

Hoop Pine is a medium density softwood having and air-dry density of approx 530kg/m3. It is pale yellow to white in colour, very easy to work with a wide range of applications from engineered structural product, ply, mouldings, flooring, furniture, joinery [LOSP treated] and shopfitting.

 

As sawn timber, Hoop Pine is generally available in 25mm 38mm and 50mm thicknesses. Grades available are clear, clear one face and a couple of lower knotty grades.
