Arura Vermelho

orginates from the forests that grow in the Amazon region of Brazil

Arura Vermelho


Arura vermelho is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The tree attains heights of 40 m, with a straight trunk and a small diameter. Due to the large zone of juvenile wood, it is difficult to produce larger (thick/wide) dimensions.



The heartwood has a dark reddish brown color. The greyish white sapwood is clearly demarcated from the heartwood. Typical is the juvenile wood, which has a beige brown color. This species has a remarkable straight grain, with a nice and fine texture. The wood surface has a more or less greasy touch.


Processing properties

Machining goes well, with a very smooth result. Pre-drilling is recommended. There are good results with gluing and finishing (including oil/stain) for exterior and interior applications. The wood dries rather quickly, with a slight tendency to warp or check. Due to the straight grain and limited shrinkage/swelling, the timber is very stable in its application.



This beautiful species is used for several applications:

Interior: e.g. furniture, parquet and stairs

Exterior: e.g. cladding and boardwalks
