Softwood 28 lbs. per cubic foot, 2.33 lbs. per board foot
Grows along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to California. Because the trees grow tall, and the material is exceptionally strong for its weight, it is the ideal spar building lumber, even though rot resistance is low. The wood shrinks little and is moderately strong in bending. The heartwood is light pinkish brown and the sapwood creamy white. Where lightweight and strength are important, it is ideal.
