from AR retailer handbook
Roble comes from Chiquitania dry forest in South East Bolivia, as opposed to a wet forest. The dry forests are ideal for harvesting strong and long lasting wood; therefore it is a very strong hardwood which is light yellow in colour. It has a smooth lustre and texture with a closely interlocked grain, Roble has excellent machining and turning qualities, finishes and polishes well. It has a durability of up to 25 years. Its strength is similar to Teak and Oak. Roble timber is slow grown, and is harvested after 80 - 100 years. If left untreated Roble will mellow down to a silver grey appearance. Our Roble is FSC® 100% and is sourced from Bolivia. Our water-based protector and/or Timber Treatment is recommended to treat Roble furniture.

A Superior sustainable wood
In 2011 we introduced our comprehensive collection of sustainable Roble hardwood, grown in Eastern Bolivia. With over five million acres of forest under management, Bolivia is the world’s leader in sustainable management of natural tropical forest. Within the Chiquitania Forest Reserve our Roble supplies come from our parent company’s estate of two million acres.
Because of the nature of tropical dry forest, the trees grow very slowly. Consequently, some of the world’s strongest and most durable woods come from the Chiquitania Forest including Roble which is incredibly strong and dense, with very high durability. It is a light coloured wood when new, until the sun gracefully transforms it to a mature, elegant silver patina.
