Red Grandis is native to eastern Australia, but is also grown by plantation in South Africa and South America.
Although native to eastern Australia, the Red Grandis we supply is from Uruguay.
Red Grandis from Uruguay is grown on a family-run plantation, rather than being harvested from a rainforest. By sourcing our Red Grandis in this way, we can supply a 100% FSC certified hardwood that is highly sustainable.
Red Grandis grows to a 60cm diameter over a 20 year period when it is then harvested. This fast-growing timber is well-managed during the growing process and is pruned on a regular basis to ensure the best specimens.
Due to the soil conditions in Uruguay, harvesting takes place all year round and means that Red Grandis has a great continuity of supply.
Our Red Grandis is classed as durable to moderately durable and is fungi resistant – this has been independently tested by TRADA.
It is easy to machine and is available as sawn timber, machined mouldings or TEC engineered components.
