Lyptus® is an eco-friendly hardwood hybrid, grown in the heart of what was Brazil’s devastated forest lands. Derived from the cross breeding of the Eucalyptus Grandis and the Eucalyptus Urophylla, this hybrid, interspersed with reintroduced indigenous trees, was created to preserve the region’s already depleted native ecosytem. Whats interesting is the tree’s ability to quickly reproduce saplings from the very stump after it’s first harvesting without the need for replanting. Thriving on carefully managed plantations in Brazil, this eucalyptus hybrid is harvested after about 15 years as compared to 70-80 years required by other premium hardwoods to mature. A plantation can produce four crops of Lyptus® in the time it takes a mahogony tree to mature. The volume of wood produced on the Lyptus® plantations is 30 times greater than that of other Brazilian forests.
With attributes such as exceptional workability, density, finish tolerance, and overall strength along with its comparable hardness to that of the Brazilian Cherry, customers can be confident that their decision in such a quality product like Lyptus® is coming from a consistent and environmentally sound source of supply. With the grain pattern like that of Mahogony and a natural color similar to the American Cherry, rest assured that it’s beauty is nothing short of marvelous. All these features contribute to what makes Lyptus® so well suited for high-end applications such as your hardwood flooring.
