Species of Wood with Wonderful Fragrances

The holidays are always filled with sweet scents of cinnamon, cloves, chestnuts and – of course – evergreen. But the Christmas tree isn’t the only wood that has a pleasant smell. From Wood Database, here are five wood species that are known for having an appealing scent.

  • Aromatic cedar: Often used in closets and chests as it repels insects and moths
  • Pine: Appreciated most during this time of year because of its scent and greenery but used year-round in construction especially outdoor applications
  • Douglas Fir: The most popular species for Christmas trees but also a popular commercial timber for construction and building
  • Oak: Commonly used in cabinet and furniture making
  • Black Walnut: Popular domestic hardwood for furniture, veneers, interior panels and turned items
To learn more about the properties and common uses for these woods and others, speak to one of our experienced lumber experts here at the Schutte Lumber by calling 888.470.41871.
