Sucupira Vermelho Hardwood

Sucupira Vermelho hardwood has a typical reddish brown colour and a coarse structure. This hardwood species is seen as a great construction type of wood, making Sucupira Vermelho (also known as Andira) ideal for heavy constructions and bridges. Due to its high customisability, Andira is of course also highly suitable for all kinds of projects, not just for heavy-duty projects.
