Suar wood tree is also known as Albizia Saman or Monkeypod, which is a large tropical rain tree that can reach up to heights of 25m. Characterized by its umbrella canopy, the tree naturally creates an insulated, cool climate underneath its thick, leafy branches. Due to its crisscrossed interlocking grains, Suar wood is highly resistant to cracking due to climate change and is highly sought-after for its robustness. Moderately heavy but extremely strong, Suar wood is highly resistant to decay and dry-wood termites. These characteristics make Suar wood highly favourable in fine furniture making compared to other woods such as Pine or Walnut.
