A hybrid eucalyptus tree, Lyptus is quickly becoming one of the world's most important hardwood lumbers, says manufacturer Weyerhaeuser, primarily because it represents a sustainable and renewable resource. In density, strength and technical properties, it compares favorably with hardwood maple, and it rivals cherry and mahogany in appearance.

Eucalyptus trees are grown on plantations where one-third of the area is kept in native vegetation to help preserve natural habitat. The wood can be harvested in 14-16 years, which is much faster than other premium hardwoods grown in colder climates. To see samples go to www.weyerhaeuser.com
