Pine is mainly imported from New Zealand. Pine wood is very strong wood, cheap and easy to work (less tool wear). Open grain gives better grip for adhesives and it will readily absorb preservatives, stains and paints.
Pines are evergreen trees and are a renewable resource; therefore pinewood is cheaper than other varieties of wood and also available in abundance.
New Zealand is acknowledged as one of the world's leading suppliers of high-quality pine. It also has the most advanced technology for clear-wood production. All 1.8 million hectares of New Zealand's plantations are renewable and nearly half are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. New Zealand's pine forests are highly productive and expanding. This ensures the availability and price stability for pine wood. In India, prices of pine wood are way less than other Species of wood, making it the best choice for constructors, decorators, packers and plywood industry.
