Tropical Hardwood Species

There are many different kinds of tropical hardwoods to choose from.  We've collected and produced some detailed information about tropical hardwood species below.  Each species has its own unique set of characteristics (color, grain pattern, etc.).  Whether you're talking about greenheart wood, Wallaba wood or any other tropical hardwood, each wood's characteristics make it particularly suitable for specific uses.  And, of course, the unique beauty of each tropical hardwood's color and grain appeals to different people in different ways.

Here at DWP, we've been dealing with tropical hardwoods for many years.  We know where to find them, how to use them, and how to make them available to whoever needs them.  That's why we call ourselves "Your Direct Source for Tropical Hardwood".  The DWP Home Page will tell you more about our tropical hardwood products & services, as will our Products page.

Please note: wood grain and color may vary from the the photographic samples provided.
