About:


 GBE Timber Species Dataset
  • GBE posted an Excel Spreadsheet of timber species to assist users:
  • Use it to:
    • search through 176 species, wood panel products and variations
    • interrogate 67 sets of data about each species
    • help specify by performance instead of species
    • find a suitable timber species
    • find a species and check if it is an appropriate choice for the application
    • find a species and then its numerous properties
    • find an alternative timber species
      • to those old favourites that we should be avoiding now.
    • find out if the species should be avoided
      • If its pink avoid it.
      • Choose FSC certified timber instead.
    • find species with durability to avoid preservatives
