Also known as ‘Plantation Hardwood’, Rubberwood is available in large and renewable quantities throughout South-East Asia. As a sap producing species, Rubberwood yields latex for rubber based products so the plantation trees have already served a useful function. After tapping is finished, the tree is felled and a new sapling is planted, the mature tree is then used for furniture production. Rubberwood is economically viable and ecologically sound. The wood has a similar grain quality and colour to Oak which is why it’s often called ‘Asian Oak’.
