Agathis dammara

Kauri Pine was originally sourced from New Zealand and Fiji when introduced into the Australian flooring market going back 30-100+ years ago. Due to the scarcity of the Kauri Pines in both these countries it is now sourced from India and has a very close resemblance to the other islands it was originally from. It is a large softwood of South East Asia extending from Malaysia through to Papua New Guinea and the Philippines. It has a reasonable consistent tan colour when new that darkens with age.

Heartwood Class 4 Durability above ground, Not Termite Resistant and Janka Hardness of 2.7
