Kwila Decking

Kwila is yellow-brown to dark red-brown in colour. Kwila has a course interlocked grain and commonly features yellow mineral deposits. It is nonsiliceous, sometimes lustrous—timber ‘bleeds’ when wet producing dark red-brown stain. South Pacific Timber only imports Kwila that carries FSC® certification that it is sourced from responsible and well-managed resources.
