Tauari Vermelho


Tauari vermelho is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The large trees have a diameter of 60 to 150 cm and get about 30-50 m high. The trunks are straight and have a length up to 24 m. It is also possible to produce larger dimensions.



The heartwood has a light brown to pinkish brown color. The timber contains often so called ‘traumatic resin canals’, which can be seen as black stripes in the longitudinal direction of the wood. The sapwood has a lighter color, and can be distinguished rather difficult. The grain is straight, sometimes interlocked, and the texture is fine to medium coarse.


Processing properties

Machining of the timber can be done well. A blunting effect can be expected due to the Silica content. The finishing and gluing are reported to be good. If desired the resin canals can be filled before finishing. It dries slowly with some risk of distortion.



This durable and medium heavy wood is used for several applications, like utility poles (USA, Brazil), decking (USA), garden tiles (Italy), constructions, carpentry and exclusive floorings. In The Netherlands it is used for lighter outside applications like garden timber (including poles, posts and fencing boards), cladding and constructions without soil contact.
