Sucupira Amarela

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

Sucupira Amarela


Sucupira amarela is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The trunks attain diameters of 50 - 80 cm with a few cm wide sapwood. 



The heartwood has a yellow gold to beige- brown color. Sometimes darker zones in the longitudinal direction are present. Sucupira amarela more or less resembles Teak.  The sapwood is easy to distinguish and has a lighter color. The lustre is remarkable. The grain is straight to irregular and sometimes interlocked. The texture is medium coarse.


Processing properties

Machining goes well, although sometimes power is required. The sawdust can cause an allergic reaction. Pre-drilling is advised. Gluing and finishing are reported to be good. Sucupira amarela dries slowly and it must be done with care to avoid checking and warping.



Sucupira amarela is a multipurpose species, also because it resembles Teak. It is used for a wide spread of exterior uses like decking, sound barriers, sheds, cladding, sheet-piling, bridge building, garden furniture and park benches.
