Aucoumea Klaineana or Okoume is a timber species native to equatorial west Africa in Gabon, Republic of Congo and Rio Muni. It is a large hardwood tree growing to 30-40 Mtr. Tall, with a trunk diameter of 1.0 Mtr – 2.5 Mtr. It has a pinkish-brown or pale red hue. Okoume has a uniform texture and the grain is straight to barely wavy that looks interlocked and attractive.
In Gabon, harvested under the Sustainable Forest Management Plan, ensures transparency and abundant availability. Okoume is a superior quality tropical timber with low density.
The colour of Okoume makes it suitable for decorative veneers also. It is easily peelable in lower thickness upto 0.2mm. This reduces the consumption of timber for face veneers and hence is more eco-friendly.
