Robinia is about as tough and strong as a European timber gets.
It is fantastic for cladding, decking, structural timber, groundworks and landscaping and probably doesn’t make it an awful lot further down the timber conversion chain such is it’s demand for exterior uses.
If there were more Robinia in the world then we would never need tolook at tropical timber for our external timber uses.
It is a very respectable yellow brown when fresh sawn that becomes a more subtle orangey brown when it dries. Robinia is very dense, very heavy and very strong.
Also Known as Black Locust
