"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.

Cedromara / Cedrorana

( Cedrelinga catenaeformis )
Colour , appearance :
Indistinct heartwood and sapwood, pinkish beige; noticeable and unpleasant smell
when the wood is moist but imperceptible when dry ; indistinct taste; low density;
Coarse texture.
– Durability:  Cedroran wood has a moderate duration even when attacked by fungi
and termites. difficult to treat with water-soluble preservatives, even under pressure
–Workability Cedroran is easy to plan, saw, rivet and screw. Receive a good finish
Artificial drying requires attention and must be well monitored.
