Usually a light-brown colour that eventually fades into a nice orangish yellow-brown. The wood of quickly growing and rather young trees is more reddish. As a result of the resinous wood, sometimes fatty spots or streaks may appear on the planed surface. Particularly due to the low price, in combination with the yellow-brown colour with beautiful flame print and the warm appearance, Douglas wood is a great option for, for instance, garden wood. With a heartwood class 3-4 when in contact with the soil, it is important however, to carefully consider the application of the wood.
Douglas is thus often applied for sheds, fences, decking, pergolas and gates.
