Cloeziana hardwood and poles
Cloeziana wood is light yellow to brown hardwood from South Africa. With a durability class I, Cloeziana hardwood can be called very durable. Cloeziana's strength class is also very positive. The heartwood is pale yellow-brown, while the sapwood is slightly yellowish. Most Cloeziana comes with a heart embedded. Heart traces can come out and will have to be tolerated. The thickness variation is approximately 10 mm per meter. Cloeziana wood originates from Australia and is planted in South Africa. This type of wood is popular for its rapid growth in the first 12 years and its straight, cylindrical trunk. Cloeziana posts are therefore a common application of this type of wood. Cloeziana hardwood is naturally immune to infestation by shipworm (SHR 2004). We supply various products made from this Cloeziana wood.
