Species Overview

This page allows you to search for a wide range of timber species and to find their descriptions and technical information.

The name search allows searches by a variety of names, including scientific name(s), common trade names and local names from the places of origin. Please note that names may overlap.

It is also possible to search by specific type of use or continent of origin or to combine search criteria in one search for a more precise result. Both lesser-known timber species and some of the most commonly used species can be found in the database. This is to enable you to search for the species you already know and to introduce lesser-known alternatives.
