Rubber trees are used for the production of latex and the manufacture of natural rubber. After 25 to 30 years of exploitation, trees that no longer produce are cut down and the wood is used in construction or interior decoration.
Sourced from this first production, rubber wood is inexpensive and readily available. It will be perfect for making stairs or for a modern decoration project.
It can also be dyed easily.
