Lyptus hardwood products are an excellent option we’d like to tell you about if you are looking for an exotic species grown to sustainable forest certification standards. Lyptus offers all of the benefits expected of a tropical hardwood, Lyptus hardwood is ideal for cabinetry, millwork, furniture and flooring applications.

Why Lyptus?

Eucalyptus trees grow quickly and can be harvested within 14-16 years of planting. Because these trees are manually pruned during their growing years, logs coming into the mill are more uniform and have fewer knots. This in turn results in high conversion rates of logs to clear lumber. It’s also available in solid or engineered flooring.

Our engineered flooring is also a good environmental choice. The plywood base is made from native trees harvested under the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification and meets the new California Air Resources Board (CARB) formaldehyde regulations. Virtually every inch of every log is put to good use — even the residuals are used as fuel.

Engineered

Available in 3 ¼- and 5-inch widths, its standard tongue-and-groove construction allows it tobe stapled, glued down or floated. It is well suited for any area of your home, including below-grade spaces and rooms with radiant heat.
