Durability vs fungi

  • (0) : undetermined.
  • (1) : very durable.
  • (2) : durable.
  • (3) : moderately durable.
  • (4) : weakly durable.
  • (5) : not durable.

Durability vs termites

  • (0) : undetermined.
  • (1) : durable (+).
  • (2) : durable (-).
  • (3) : moderately durable.
  • (4) : sensitive (-).
  • (5) : sensitive (+).

Impr├ęgnability

  • (0) : undetermined.
  • (1) : impregnable: easy to treat. Sawn wood can be completely impregnated by a pressure treatment with no difficulty
  • (2) : moderately impregnable: quite easy to treat. Usually, a complete penetration is not possible but a wide proportion of vessels can be penetrated after a two to three-hour pressure treatment.
  • (3) : little impregnable: difficult to treat; a three to four-hour treatment does not yield more than 3 to 6 mm of lateral penetration.
  • (4) : not impregnable: virtually impossible to treat; very few products are absorbed even after a long treatment.

Risk class defining the possible use of timber

  • (1) : away from ground, sheltered.
  • (2) : away from ground, sheltered, with moisture risks.
  • (3) : away from ground, not sheltered, no or little water stagnation.
  • (4) : contact with fresh water.
  • (5) : contact with sea water.

Poorly determined species (genus only) have not been included.
