Angara Pine

The Angara pine is an ecotype of the Scots pine, distributed in Central Siberia. It is usually denser than its European counterpart and benefits from a low thermal conductivity. Its natural characteristics make it a particularly suitable choice for energy-efficient construction projects with low ecological impact.


The Angara pine is an ecotype of the Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) distributed in Central Siberia and named after the Angara river that flows out from the southern part of lake Baikal. The Scots pine, belonging to the Diploxylon subgenus (two needles, winged seeds), is the most present species of the Pine genus and the second most represented coniferous wood species on Russian territory after Siberian larch. Scots Pine is the most significant commercial species in Russia. As of 2006, it represents about 40% of the annually planted species in the country, over an area of 800 000 hectares. It has a large ecological amplitude and spreads over a vast majority of the Russian federation. On the northern Eurasian continent, it spreads from the Alps in the West to the Sea of Okhotsk in the East. It is found from the steppe biome upper limit in the South to the northern timberline in the North.

Technical Characteristics

Its timber is strong and its grain is tight in response to long winters and short growing seasons. It has low thermal conductivity, it is easily processed and is robust to temperature and humidity variations. In addition, it releases phytoncides that have a recognized antibacterial and air sanitizing effect.


The Angara pine has truly become a unique Siberian brand with significant appeal for the construction industry, carpentry and furniture manufacturing.

Angara pine lumber is mostly recommended for timber constructions.
