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



Jarana is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The trunks have a large shape, which makes it possible to produce larger dimensions. Jarana is mainly imported as round wood for piles, and also in sawn wood for posts.



Freshly cut, the heartwood has a light brown to red brown color. After drying and exposure it darkens to red brown. The sapwood is lighter and easy to distinguish. The lustre is medium. Jarana has often traumatic resin canals, appearing a few mm wide lines on the surface. The grain is straight, sometimes interlocked. The texture is medium fine.


Processing properties

Machining of this heavy species goes relatively well. There is a slight blunting effect due to the Silica content. Pre-drilling is recommended. Drying goes quickly, but must be done with care to avoid checking and deformation.



Jarana is used in exterior uses like hydraulic constructions, piles, sleepers and see defence constructions.
