Moving on from a European wood in Beech – our ECO card series shifts the focus to the North American, highly sought-after cherry wood.
A deciduous straight-grain hardwood, cherry wood is a desirable wood for both professionals and homeowners due to its durability, flexibility and array of colours and patterns.
Typically, a rich, reddish-brown colour, cherry wood can appear differently dependent on the tree and levels of light exposure - whilst natural cherry wood changes colour over time to produce the beautiful reddish-brown previously mentioned.
Capable of growing up to heights of 100ft, cherry wood can live up to 100 years, but is typically felled after 50 to 90 years due to cherry trees being susceptible to rotting in their trunk.
