Our Durapalm¨ palmwood comes from plantation grown coconut palms, which are in abundance throughout much of the world. Palms produce nuts for up to 80 years, then non-producing palms are removed and replaced. Coconut palmwood can vary greatly in color and density. We use only the hard, dark palm for our look and durable surface. Durapalm¨ palmwood flooring and palmwood plywood are made from multiple layers of palm, creating both stable and durable flooring and plywood products of great beauty.
As the rainforest continues to be tapped for timber needs, coconut palms have been an overlooked and under utilized resource. We hope that through our work, palmwood will one day be recognized as a valuable building resource and help reducerainforest harvesting.
