This species is well known for its use in dock and harbor applications.  It is commonly used for marine piling due to its high resistance to marine borers.

Green Heart is very difficult to work and develops large surface cracks as it dries, limiting most of its use to places where it will not be seen, marine applications or if it will be wrapped with another wood. Not recommended in small dimensions or under 2" thickness.

Green Heart is an excellent choice for marine piling and shoring.  The pilings are available in long lengths.

Fred Oesch has been including solar design, green timber frame, straw bale construction, living earth roofs, and organic environmental control systems[inc. Hydronic Radiant Heating and Cooling] into his architectural designs for over 30 years. Oesch is available for residential or commercial design projects in the Caribbean where he once had a home, inc. lecture presentations, and teaching Design and Building.

Fred continues to work on many projects, but he prefers to keep his base organization small, as he believes it helps to maintain a greater overall singular vision, project continuity, and cost effectiveness for his client friends. He manages a "Virtual Consortium," assembling highly skilled inter-disciplinary teams for larger projects, rather than maintain a higher overhead and large staff, thereby providing the most site specific and cost effective solutions for each client and project.
