FAQs / Is Macrocarpa suitable for decking?

Macrocarpa is suitable for decking and does not need to be treated. Its natural durability can be sufficient for this purpose.

However, its durability is unreliable in moderate-high decay hazard situations, and occasional failures may occur within 10-15 years. Therefore it is not recommended in-ground, such as for posts and piles.

See Macrocarpa on the species section.

See the how-to guide for information on building a deck.
