Difference between Pine Radiata and Pine Sylvestris


1. Radiata pine, also known as New Zealand pine, is mainly distributed in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and other places, and its origin distribution is mainly concentrated in the southern hemisphere.

2. Pinus sylvestris is mainly distributed in the Daxinganling Mountains in Northeast China, Russia, Ukraine and other places, and its production areas are mainly concentrated in the northern hemisphere.


1. The radiata pine wood has a relatively uniform structure and strong stability. It is a relatively high-quality soft material, not easy to deform, easy to dry and cure, and easy to color.

2. Due to the high oiliness of Pinus sylvestris, it has a great influence on the adhesion of the paint surface. After it is made into furniture, it looks good in the initial stage, but it is easy to change color in the later stage. But radiata pine is not easy to change color, its color is good, the knots are small, and it is easy to process.

3. There are obvious color differences between Pinus radiata and Pinus sylvestris. Pinus radiata is pale yellow in color and whitish in color, but Pinus radiata is yellowish in color and prone to blue change - the surface is blue-green in the initial stage, and blue-black in the middle stage. The latter appears light black.

4. Radiata bulk has low density, low oiliness, and its texture is relatively broad. Pinus sylvestris is oily, and the color difference between the core material and the middle material is more obvious, the texture is also more obvious, and it is easier to crack.
