Rosewood belongs to the Genus Dalbergia species. The wood has a strong sweet smell, which persists over many years, explaining the name ‘rosewood’. Some trees become canopy trees up to 30 m high.
Rose wood is a highly regarded rainforest tree from various countries in the world like Australia, India, Thailand and Brazil. It has a very fragrant and dense grain near the core, however the outer sapwood is soft and porous. It is very durable and stronger than teak and used for quality furnishings.
