Sustainability

Currently, rubber plantation trees are generally harvested for wood after they complete the latex producing cycle, when they are about 25 to 30 years old. When the latex yields become extremely low, the trees are then chopped down to make way for new rubber trees. This makes rubberwood eco-friendly as the wood is harvested from a renewable source and it makes use of plantation trees that have already served a useful function.

Giving Trees A New Lease Of Life

Instead of letting it being disposed or burned away, we turned to these eco-friendly rubber wood for our standing desk tabletop and give them a new lease of life. It also helps in someway to prevent deforestation since the rubber trees are not grown specifically for the lumber, but instead have lumber as a by product in a rubber plantation.

Rubber Wood

End Product

The rubber wood is generally treated after sawing by pressurized immersion in preservatives, followed by kiln drying to diffuse the chemicals and to control moisture content inside the wood. Rubber wood is considered one of the most sustainable wood as it is renewable and produced in a rubber plantation. Consider having a piece of nature in your home!
