The official word:

Rich red brown heartwood, pinky when fresh sawn, pales as it dries but an exterior finish will maintain colouring once surface is dry. Although difficult to treat due to Tannin content WRC is naturally durable, weathers well and silvers down over time.


Popular with architects and designers, WRC is not a heavy duty timber but is great for garden structures, furniture, fencing, decking and gates.
