Brazilian Koa/Tigerwood(Astronium Fraxinifolium)
Tigerwood is an exotic wood species that is best known for its beautiful graining. With its deep reddish-orange background with dark vein striping, it is a dramatic and durable hardwood. Tigerwood has a wide range of coloring and striping. The striping can vary from fine lines to bold strokes and the color can have a large degree of color change from a light orange and tan to a deep reddish brown. It also has a highly lustrous surface that is considered almost oily in appearance.
With trees growing up to a height of 80 feet or more, it can be found in the top canopy of forests as well as the lower story and has no special soil requirements.
Tigerwood is commonly used to produce flooring products and is considered very durable, and it resists denting and traffic wear very well.
Depending on the amount of sunlight it receives, the color will darken over time. This beautiful, exotic wood is a great choice for either an entire floor or accent border.
Country of origin:
South America, mainly Brazil
