Thuya Wood

December 21st, 2014

Thuya the amazingly resolute coniferous tree is indigenous to the Western foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The Latin name for the tree is Tetraclinis Articulata. The local name Thuya, is a Berber word of the original inhabitants of the area. Thuya is an aromatic, exotic wood and gives off an aromatic odour for protection from parasites. This plesent odour tends to stay with the wood for many years. Thuya woods beauty has been recognised since ancient Roman times. Furniture made of Thuya wood has been found in Roman ruins.
The trunk wood is a light brown colour, The unique effect of Thuya wood products is achieved by using the root wood. It’s the outgrowths on the roots that give Thuya wood its unique distinct pattern. The unique blend of this burled grain is exclusive to the region.
