Metsä Fibre’s spruce and pine sawn timber is available in a selection of grades that can be easily identified by their shipping marks. The shipping marks stamped on the ends of sawn timber tell the recipient who the timber producer is as well as the type and grade of the sawn timber.
Sawn timber is classified into various grades based on its technical and visual properties. The technical properties include the dimensions, moisture content and warping of the sawn timber. The visual properties include the location, size, number, quality and composition of knots and warps. At Metsä Fibre, we use the Nordic timber commercial grading rules for both our pine (Pinus sylvestris) and spruce (Picea abies) sawn timber.
