Our trading history with African suppliers goes back many years: years in which Brooks Bros has developed a real understanding of the many and varied woods that its tropical forests can sustain. From Cedrella to Zebrano…from Tropical West and Central Africa …from cabinet making and boat building to construction work and decorative veneers African hardwoods are a part of our everyday life.
The American hardwood industry dates back to the first European settlers and today claims to have more temperate hardwood species than any other region of the world. From the heavily forested Eastern States to the Appalachian mountain range its hardwood forests support a wide variety of commercial species. Grading Rules established more than a century ago and good forest management practice ensure product stability, consistancy and sustainability.
