Larch wood has many interesting characteristics such as its natural durability and its physical and mechanical properties. Moreover, larch is the most used wood species for patio covering due to its good resistance.
SINCE A VERY LONG TIME
WHAT IS LARCH WOOD
The larch tree is the only indigenous coniferous tree, which we find on our territory, that loses its needles during the winter. Moreover, it is a type of tree that does not stand shading. In the fall, its foliage changes color and then it falls to the ground. A very fast growing tree, it has a super good resistance. Therefore, it tolerates the de-icing salt of our roads, drought and different types of soil.
A LITTLE HISTORY
THE FOUNDATIONS OF VENICE
The foundations of the buildings in Venice were built with a plantation of pointed posts made of larch or oak wood. Planted until they reach a particularly hard and compact layer of clay soil, the foundations are about ten meters below the layer of earth to be built.
The position and arrangement of the wooden poles was carried out according to a multiple alignment, along the strip of land where the walls were erected.
