IRON WOODS GREEN HEART
Green Heart (Ocotea rodiaei)
This species from Guyana is well known for its use in dock and harbor applications and is commonly used for marine piling due to its high resistance to marine borers.
Green Heart is very difficult to work and develops large surface cracks as it dries, limiting most of its use to marine applications. Not recommended in small dimensions or under 2″ thickness. Green Heart is an excellent choice for marine piling and shoring.
