The majority of the outdoor treated wood products one can find on the market, either by the traditional timber wholesalers, or by the DIY chains, are coming from Poland. The Polish sawmills have specialized in this product category, because they are located in the heart of European Scots Pine forests. This species of wood is indeed the most fitted for the outdoor use of wooden products.
