Rimu, also known as ‘red pine’, is one of New Zealand’s most popular native timbers. Māori used this wood to build canoes, tools and Rongoa, Maori medicine.

 It is a very tall canopy tree that is found in forests throughout the North Island and the coastal areas of the South Island, predominately the north, east and south areas. 

Rimu is a medium density softwood with a fine textured grain, the heart wood is reddish brown. The middle zone known as coloured Rimu has a light brown colour and the sap wood a Pale lighter brown tone.
