"One of the secrets of the durability of this wood is that these trees produce chemicals within them that protect the trunk from attack by fungi and insects. Thanks to these protections, these noble species can last hundreds of years and serve a variety of applications, from domestic construction to the development of musical and sporting instruments, to the manufacture of extremely robust furniture, given their mechanical / physical characteristics. Moreover, some species are open to various external applications (building, naval constructions, swimming pool decks etc.) thanks precisely to their phenomenal resistance to atmospheric and marine agents.

Cambara’ wood can be used in civil construction, living
rooms, cornices, beams, poles, claddings, slats, bats,
carvings, turning pieces and even in shipbuilding. Both the
trunk and the roots produce excellent curves for craft
nautical processes. Although the trunk is generally tortuous,
it is widely used in the construction of fences, such as poles
and external structures.
