Wood has served a vital function in construction throughout human history. In the book of 2 Kings, the Hebrew scriptures tell the glories of the Cedar trees of Lebanon, which were famously imported into Israel for the construction of King Solomon's temple in Jerusalem. Yet over centuries, the always-increasing demand for wood from a growing population have resulted in over-harvesting of trees and deforestation zones in which entire ecosystems are devastated. For furniture craftsmen, this concern is changing the entire wood furniture market.

 

Enter the Eucalyptus tree


The incredible growth of this unique tree is up to 11 times more productive when compared to a temperate forest and may be freely harvested within 14 to 16 years of planting. Furthermore, intrepid farmers in Brazil have grown a hybrid of two Eucalyptus species that boast the unique look of mahogany and cherry mixed with the look of an exotic wood. This exciting new wood, simply called "Lyptus", is become a game-changing wood choice for furniture craftsmen. The Brazilian company Fibria manages Lyptus plantations spread over 875,000 hectares and boasts an annual production of 5.25 million tons of Lyptus wood product.

But why does Lyptus wood matter?


Furniture-shoppers are increasingly "eco-conscious" and looking to find furniture that is not harmful to the environment and still possesses strength and beauty. Lyptus meets both of these demands. Lyptus wood is grown on vast plantations in Brazil in such a way as to meet environmental sustainability needs. Blaine Neupert of "Furniture World" magazine writes, "These are great selling points for customers who like the look and feel of hardwoods, but may have worried that wood furniture might contribute to deforestation."

How come I've never heard of Lyptus wood?


"Hold on a second," you may be thinking, "how come I've never heard of Lyptus wood?" The answer is the rise of Lyptus is just beginning to reach its way to furniture retailers around the globe. A simple Google search for "Lyptus furniture" brings in roughly 245,000 results, with links to a variety of furniture retailers among the top. Lyptus wood is quickly becoming a major option, right along with Cherry and Mahogany, for consumers seeking affordable, beautiful, durable home furnishings. Simply put, Lyptus wood will become a well-known name to furniture-shoppers within the next 10 years.
