provém das florestas que crescem na região amazônica do Brasil



Mandioqueira is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The trees attain heights up to 60 m, and maximum diameter of about 100 cm. The trunk is straight and cylindrical. It is possible to produce larger dimensions.



The color of the heartwood is yellowish red brown, with a light and fine stripy pattern. Often there is a white substance in the pores of the wood. The sapwood can easily be distinguished. The grain is mainly straight, but could be curved sometimes. The texture is medium coarse.


Processing properties

The wood can be machined rather easily, although there is a slight blunting effect due to the Silica content. Pre-drilling is recommended. Finishing (including oil/stain) and gluing of Mandioqueira can be done successfully. The timber dries quickly with a (small) tendency to warp and check.



Mandioqueira is used for several applications:

Interior: e.g. flooring, parquet, stairs

Exterior: e.g. cladding, decking (boardwalks), constructions and street furniture
