Chengal - Neobalanocarpus heimii 

Buy Chengal Wood Planks here. 

Small pin-holes, caused by ambrosia beetles boring into the living trees, are a common and characteristic defect of Chengal. These small holes are often numerous, but although unsightly, they are only in exceptional cases sufficiently numerous to impair the strength of the timber. These ambrosia beetles die when the timber is seasoned and thus the damage is restricted almost entirely to that which occurs in the green timber.

Due to its excellent water resistant properties, the Chengal wood is suitable for outdoor solid wood decking, garden planter box and outdoor solid wood bench and table.
