Did you know that Siberian larch has really unique features?
Scientists proved that this sort of conifers has special natural antioxidant.
Chemical analysis showed that Siberian larch contains bioflavonoid which blocks the process of creating free radicals in the human's body that cause numerous serious diseases.
In addition Siberian larch is a constant source of Phytoncides, which prevent the occurrence of colds and viral diseases. There are many legends created about beauty and utility of Siberian larch. Firmness of Siberian larch is practically the same as the firmness of oak, and its resistance to biological effects is significantly higher in comparison with other sort of conifers.
Specialists believe that the optimal combining of hardness, moisture resistance and beauty make Siberian larch a leader amongst cutting timber. Since this timber is rot-resistant products made from it last for hundreds years. It is time proven.
From this timber the piles for Trojan bridge on the Danube were made. These piles were solidified during 1800 years. In the same way the piles used in construction of Venice have become more solid.
As researches have shown this happens because of resin composition, which makes timber more moisture resistant and long-term presence of water makes larch wood even harder. Timber made from Siberian wood is widely used in shipping industry, construction and joinery. These elements for building construction, parquet boards, windows frame, railway sleepers and poles for electricity transmission.
The fact is that cutting Siberian larch timber does not become crooked and does not crack when temperature is changed. Also Siberian larch is wonderful material for terrace boards, parquet flooring, parquet board from solid wood and floor wedges. Its natural reddish hue does not require additional painting and under a layer of lacquer and oil it gets a golden hue which with time becomes even juicier. Parquet in Ostankino palace of count Sheremetiev looks just like we wrote above. The same color has window frames and doors of "Vardar" hotel in Kotor, Montenegro.

Firmness of Siberian larch timber is practically not less than firmness of oak timber: firmness of larch – 109 units, oak -110 units.
Hardness of Siberian larch timber as to Brinell scale ranges from 2.9 HBS (tangential cut) to 3.2 HBS (radial cut) which is pretty close to oak – 3.7 HBS.
- Resistance to moisture
Siberian larch timber is resistant to moisture and exceeds oak timber for example, as it is known that oak base board has to be cover by different chemical solution in order to protect it from moisture. For larch boards, for example, base boards, it is not necessary. It is protected by very nature.
- Resistance to rot
