Its density, straight grain, smooth finish, and honey color make it an excellent choice for flooring and outdoor furniture.
Creative Woodwork International makes folding, transforming, outdoor furniture, such as the bench above, using plantation eucalyptus.
Lyptus® is the trademarked name for a hybrid of two eucalyptus species, Eucalyptus grandis and Eucalyptus urophylla. The trees are grown on plantations in South America alongside reintroduced indigenous trees that preserve native ecosystems. Lyptus is manufactured by Aracruz Wood Products in Bahia, Brazil and distributed in North America by Weyerhaeuser. It can be used for cabinetry, flooring and panelling.
