Radiata Pine

MRG specialises in stock and distribution of New Zealand Radiata Pine (Pinus Radiata) products throughout Australia.  We offer a comprehensive range of both dressed and sawn Radiata Pine products, at the same time we are able to cater to individual requirements upon request.

Radiata Pine (which is native to California and classified as a softwood) can be used for many different purposes including construction, furniture, mouldings, trim, paneling, landscaping, decking and more.  Since Radiata Pine was introduced into New Zealand in the 1850's it has thrived and there is now high demand worldwide for Radiata Pine from New Zealand.

In general the heartwood of Radiata Pine is light brown to chestnut brown in appearance and is able to be easily painted or stained if required.  Machining or dressing Radiata boards is also very common as well.


Radiata Pine also goes by the following names: Pinus Radiata, Pinus Insignis, Monterey Pine.
