FSC® Tento is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The sizes of the trees depend on the botanical species. Usually the trees attain heights up to about 30 m, and diameters of 40-70 cm. The shape of the trunks is straight and cylindrical.



The heartwood is yellow brown to orange brown with a remarkable light colored stripy pattern. The sapwood (varying between 3 -15 cm) can easily distinguish. The grain is often interlocked or irregular. The texture is coarse and sometimes ring shakes can appear.


Processing properties

Machining of Tento can be done well, when taking care of the irregular / interlocked grain. Pre-drilling is advised. The gluing and finishing are reported to be good. The wood dries easy without special drying defects.



The rather durable Tento can be used very well in outside applications, like cladding, decking and walkways.
