Wood Properties


Common name : Rubberwood
Local name : Karet
Wood colour : Light brown with dark red veins. Numerous resin canals.

The rubber tree (hevea brasiliensis) is indigenous to the Amazon forests of Brazil. The mature trees in its native habitat are about 25-30 metres tall with average girth of greater than 1 metre at breast height.
Rubber plantations have existed for hundred of years in tropical countries. These plantations have been used mainly for the production of latex. The tapping of latex begins at about year 6 and is continued up to about 25 years after planting. After the economic life of the rubber tree, which is generally 25-30 years, the latex production become uneconomical , and should be replanted. The planters then fell the rubber trees and plant new ones. This eco-friendly rubberwood is an excellent timber to use for furniture and components.
