Fir and Spruce are two of the most common softwoods used in residential and commercial construction projects. The abundance and proper forest stewardship of Fir and Spruce species have ensured the woods are readily and widely available. Fir and Spruce’s primary applications are in framing and construction. Spruce has a strait grain with consistent growth patterns making it an ideal choice for structural applications where strength, resiliency, and the ability to withstand weather are needed.
Beyond residential and commercial construction, Fir and Spruce have a favorable weight to strength ratio; making them perfect options for airplane and boat building. In both airplane and boat construction, high strength and light weights are vital.
