We also have experience in managing sawmills in remote areas and we advise in proper forrest management. It is very important to us that our timber is harvested in such a manner as to sustain the forrest. Timber is a natural resource that if properly managed, it will be available for many generations to come.






Tropical hardwoods are our passion and we enjoy working personally with our clients to get them the unique results that they are searching for. Advising Architects, Designers, Decorators, Landscapers, etc. on which timber species would best fit their need is a way to assist them in having a long lasting, beautiful and durable end result. There are many things to consider when looking into your options of tropical hardwoods for a project. Some of these woods love to be used in moist environments while others are able to withstand dry heat.
