Cumaru Wood Species
The Cumaru Hardwood (also referred to as Southern Spotty or Southern Spotted Gum) is native to the Southern Hemisphere and comes from the Dipteryx Odorata Tree. This species is often found in tropical environments in Central America, South America, Peru, and Colombia, which may just be the reason behind its toughness.
Not only is this timber incredibly strong due to its interlocked grain, but it is also exceptionally stable with its popularity quickly growing worldwide. The Cumaru lumber is recognised across the industry for its stiffness, strength, and hard finish, which enables it to be used in a variety of residential and commercial applications. What’s more is the natural hardness and oils infused in Cumaru, creates a naturally treated wood which will stand the test of time in any environment.
The versatile Cumaru hardwood is typically used in applications such as flooring, decking, bridges, boardwalks, marinas, pergolas, handles, furniture, heavy construction, docks, bearings and more. It can also be used in both internal and external environments.
