Beli, Julbernardia pellegriniana, is a tropical African hardwood with medium durability and density and interlocked grain. Grown in equatorial western Africa, the tree averages 60 to 95 feet in height with 3 to 5 feet diameters typical. The wood has similar working properties and appearance to Zebra with less of a tendency to warp, twist, and check. Colors in this high quality hardwood range from browns with dark stripes to warm golden tones with medium brown stripes. Beli wood, also known as Zebreli, is scarce and generally not available on the market in the United States.
