Red Elm 8/4 F/C Lumber
Price: $4.10
     Red or Slippery Elm is commonly found throughout the Eastern to Midwest United States. Its color is a light to medium reddish-brown met by a paler, well defined sapwood. The grain is interlocked which gives it a hefty resistance to splitting or tearing and this is accompanied by its coarse, uneven texturing. Although this specie is not endangered, Dutch Elm Disease has wiped out millions of all Elm variants world wide and continues to spread through insect attacks. Rated as non-durable and non-resistant to insect attacks this wood is considered less of an outdoor wood than others unless treated properly.
