Wood Properties:
Tigerwood, or Coula edulis, is a very dense, heavy and hard wood that is found in the more tropical areas of western Africa. It is an evergreen treethat grows to 125 feet tall with long leaves that range from four to twelve inches.
The tigerwood tree or lumber is sometimes mistaken for zebrawood, the Brazilian Goncalvo alves. Tigerwood differs from zebrawood by having adistinctive bronze to yellow-brown coloring, reminiscent of a tiger. The striping effect is quite pronounced. The heartwood of zebrawood tends to be much darker than that of tigerwood, with colors often ranging from dark brown to black.
Over-logging of African tigerwood is prevented by export restrictions, which maintains the status of tigerwood as a more expensive wood more likely to be used in veneer applications.

The hardness of the wood, its water resistance, and its resistance to termites have made it valuable in heavy construction applications such as bridge pilings and railway ties, as well as any typical type of moderate construction use. Because of its unusual appearance when cut, tigerwood is also valued for its visual appeal. This tiger-like striped effect is highly desirable in furniture-making and cabinetry, as a veneer or in any type of fine woodworking applications.
