@brett soutar do you have any pics of the logs or what is the SED of the logs? SED is a better gauge for how much heartwood will be in the boards

@brett soutar do you have any pics of the current lot of crypto milled. I am interested in what the knots are like in it. How many many loose or dead knots are there? Loose knots are the biggest downfall for crypto when taken from the likes of shelterbelt trees.

Very low density timber, prone to chewing and boring insect attack also sapwood is not noted for durability in exterior use. Overseas it is thermally modified which would make it very durable.
