Softwood

Wood from conifers is generally referred to as softwood; softwood trees include spruce, pine, fir, larch and cedar. Softwood lumber is easy-to-saw and is usually put to work in structural building components. It is also found in other products such as millwork (mouldings, doors, windows) and furniture.
