Structural Pine:
The Benefits

Structural Pine South Brisbane

Structural Pine is becoming an increasingly popular timber as more plantations are established to meet the demand for the product. It boasts a number of benefits making it the ideal building material.

Renewable: Pine in Australia is harvested from plantations that are regulated by government organisations to ensure they are sustainable and have a minimal environmental impact.

As structural pine is harvested from plantations, it lessens our demands on timber from our state forests, thus preserving the natural beauty of Australia.

Easy to Work With: Structural Pine is easier to cut, stain and carve than other natural materials, reducing the amount of time projects take to complete.

The biggest benefit to working with pine is its acceptance of nails. Some timber materials prove difficult to nail– some of which even require pre-drilled holes.

Resistance to Decay: Structural pine timber can be treated to resist decay and rot. It is a worth investment for longer-lasting structural pine timber. Unlike steel and other metal construction materials, structural pine timber does not corrode in salt air or heavy industrial environments.

Aesthetic Natural Design: Timber is naturally pleasing to the eye, and little needs to be done to make is beautiful. With its unique grain structure and patterns, structural pine has a unique aesthetic value.

Versatile and Durable: Structural and visual grade pine timber is often chosen for outdoor structures.

Structural pine is hard-wearing and durable, making it an ideal timber to use for deck, patio or flooring construction.

Structural pine is better for construction projects that rely on strength and durability, such as flooring, fencing, decking and high-quality furniture. Softwood is best utilised on doors, windows, ceilings and furniture.

Our History

Structural Pine South Brisbane

We began Gowan Lea Timbers over 25 years ago when we decided to open a small retail yard for timber needs on the rapidly growing Sunshine Coast of Queensland. We started with two staff members, a forklift, a flat-bed truck, and an office in a shipping container, and as we grew, we gained a solid reputation for boasting the best pine around. 

It didn’t take us by surprise. Our mill—Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company—had been operating for over 40 years and was already a well-respected wholesaler of premium quality western QLD Spotted Gum and Ironbark products. However, when the Queensland State Government bought out and closed Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company through a Regional Forestry Agreement process in 2007, the retail timber yard was left without a supply of the premium pine that our business relied upon.

It was then we entered into a productive relationship with Mary Valley Timbers, a green pine sawmill near Gympie, who had a similar focus on quality and cut 95% Spotted Gum and Ironbark.
