Durability is the ability of a species to resist decay either naturally or through preservatives. The Class is based on the ability of the heartwood (inner part of the tree) to resist fungal decay. The sapwood (the living outermost portion of the tree)is considered not durable and should not be used for external projects without preservative.
Class 1 to 3 can be left as untreated timber, a natural ageing process will accrue e.g. Larch will turn a grey colour. Class 4 and 5 will need to be treated with preservatives.
