Species Description: Wood Species

Lenga comes from the Southern Andes, Chile and Argentina.  It is similar in many respects to American Cherry, it is easily worked and finished, albeit slightly lighter in colour.

—————————————————

Sustainability: Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common uses: Veneer, boxes, furniture, interior trim, and other small specialty wood items.

Comments: A cost-effective substitute for Cherry, it could be stained to get the deeper hue of Cherry, but stands on its own as a light coloured timber which is easy to work with. Good for furniture, and would make nice panelling.
