I am trying to replicate a British flammability standard for
industrial purposes, and it calls for Scots Pine (Pinus silvestris)
which appears to be largely unavailable in the USA. I need a very
small quantity, so it is not practical to import. Does anyone out
there have any knowledge of what wood might be equivalent to Scots
Pine in terms of density/hardness and rosin content? The British
standard does not specify anything about the wood except the type and
the dimensions, so I assume there are standard grades available in the
UK, and so hopefully there is a N. American standard grade of wood
that is equivalent.
Thanks for your help!
and download (at least) Chapter 1. I don't know if /Pinus
Silvestris/ is included; but your chances are good. If you do
much woodworking, this publication is a "must have".

Maybe the closest is Red Pine (Pinus resinosa). It's hard to tell them
apart from P. sylvestris, and taxonomically, they are in the same
group. I suspect the wood is very similar too. Checkout the FPL site
others have mentioned for the properties to see if they have any more
