European Acacia:
European Acacia (Robinia pseudoacacia) is extremely hard and dense exotic wood.  It is resistant to rot and very durable, making it ideal for furniture, flooring, boats, and more. From naturalized forests in Europe, trees range in size from large shrubs to taller trees 70 ft. or taller with diameters of 10” to 36” or more depending on age and growing conditions. Thorns gave this wood the nickname “Spear Tree” as the thorns will easily act as a spear to any unwitting passers by.

Acacia Mangium:
Acacia Mangium is a medium sized flowering tree species that grows anywhere from from the Papua New Guinea region to Northeastern Australia. The tree grows to a height of 80-90 ft.  Its common names include: Black wattle, hickory wattle, mangium, and forest mangrove. Acacia Mangium is a very productive timber tree that produces excellent quality brownish golden hardwood lumber with a density of 0.65 which is nearly identical to Claro walnut. The rich colors in this species make excellent woodworking projects.
