South Pacific Redwood, also known as Torem, is a lustrous brown or reddish-brown hardwood that is extremely strong. This strength allows Torem to be highly durable under a wide array of conditions. The genus that Torem is a part of can be found all over the world with high volumes in both the tropical Americas and tropical Africa. This particular species is primarily located in southeast Asia.
Torem is a close cousin of south American Massaranduba, also known as Bulletwood. Extremely high in density, this hardwood that we sell as South Pacific Redwood is more stable and much less prone to checking than the Massaranduba. It’s a beautiful species of wood that’s naturally durable and has a stunning red color. A perfect wood for decking and siding.
With the ability to maintain structural integrity as it ages, South Pacific Redwood is a natural beauty. To retain the rich red coloring of the wood we recommend a high-quality penetrating oil finish with ultraviolet inhibitors. Pair this with regular cleaning and reapplication of the finish and you are ensuring the wood will retain its beauty for many years.
