Softwood is derived from coniferous trees such as pine, spruce, fir and larch. Softwood varieties are softer than hardwood and are generally evergreen. They grow in cool climates and can be sourced easily from countries such as Canada and Northern Russia.
Softwood has a faster rate of growth and when kiln dried and treated with certain chemicals, are massively used for building home and office furniture. However softwood is less durable when compared to hardwood. Softwood is easier to work on and is cheaper than hardwood.
Though Softwood cannot be distinguished from Hardwood in terms of its strength, weight and density, it can be dimensionally classified depending on its unit of measurement. Moreover the leaves of Softwood trees can be easily identified because of their needle-shape. The leaves appear spiked and thorny.
