Landscaping & Heavy Construction Hardwood Timbers

From its early origins Rosenfeld Kidson has been importing hardwood timber from around the world for heavy construction and infrastructure projects.  Hardwood timbers for bridge, railway and wharf construction, piles and crossarms have been supplied to the New Zealand market by Rosenfeld Kidson since 1930.

There is now also an increasing demand for durable hardwood landscaping timbers for both domestic and commercial landscaping projects, as well as timber boardwalk construction around parks, reserves and waterfronts. 

Where in the past high durability Australian hardwoods have been used, the preferred landscaping timber species are now our FSC 100% certified South American hardwoods Tonka and Garapa.

Typical timber sizes used for these landscaping applications are 150x40mm, 150/200x50mm and 200/250x75mm; however, we stock Tonka in sizes up to 300x300mm.

Tonka has become the hardwood timber of choice for public space developments in applications such as boardwalks, wharfs, bridges and other structural end uses.

Garapa is increasingly the preferred hardwood timber choice for smaller dimension applications such as exterior furniture and joinery and smaller dimension decking. 

All of Rosenfeld Kidson’s Garapa and Tonka hardwood carries full independent FSC 100% environmental certification that it comes from sources that are well managed to strict social, economic and environmental standards.
