Originating from western Canada, hemlock features a fine texture and a straight, uniform grain. Its light heartwood also makes it a popular choice for applications because it requires minimal bleaching. It produces a lustrous pale timber that is an attractive choice for carving. Hemlock is used in construction but as softwood is not durable and requires treatment for external use. Hemlock is one of the best pulp woods for paper and paperboard products.
