OK, this discussion on wood has been excellent.
I have replaced the reference to specific woods with this:
"replace in kind to match existing..."
and added "...if suitable"
I think "if suitable" is needed because the wood may have deteriorated because it was unsuitable. I come across this all the time, just a bad piece of wood, or a later replacement of bad wood. "If suitable" allows workers to use their knowledge and make a judgement on this issue of wood selection, instead of just dogmatically replacing to match, even if the original was a bad type of wood.
Wood repairs for sashes, frames and sills.
