Lumber from Coconut Tree
Studies showed that wood from matured coconut trees when cut into 50 mm thick can be
used for housing and furniture materials.
To ensure that the wood does not get deformed, the lower part of the tree is cut and allowed
to dry in the air.
During summer, drying takes about 11-14 weeks and 16-17 weeks on rainy days.
