Greenheart Timber

Greenheart timber is one of the strongest hardwoods around, making greenheart an ideal product for use in a wide range of construction and marine activities.

Greenheart timber is extensively used in situations where strength, durability and hard wearing properties are essential. The hardwood is often used in marine environments as an 'untreated alternative' to other hardwoods, as it is resistant to decay, aquatic organisms and has a high density value. Ryder Services also offer various other species of Hardwood and Marine timbers.

Greenheart timber has many uses, including marine protection, coastal protection, piling, ship construction, lock gates, bridge construction and use in mining activities.

Greenheart timber as with other hardwood and marine timbers is an extremely difficult timber to work with, due to the nature of thegreenheart's interlocking grain structure. However Ryder Services offer a solution to this problem, due to our dedicated sawmills, we can machine cut greenheart timber to suit your specifications and requirements, allowing you to receive the exact product you require. Saving you time and money.
