ABOUT CAMPHOR WOOD
Camphor trees are fast growing trees that tend to develop poor structure. This means they don’t hold up well in storms! The bark, twigs and the evergreen, waxy leaves release a strong menthol like camphor smell when crushed, which helps repel insects. Camphor trees are an invasive species in the United States, frequently found displacing native trees in Florida. It’s considered a weed tree in Australia and removed whenever possible as an invasive species too. It’s a native tree in both China and Japan, where this fast growing tree is often used for lumber. The wood color ranges from a honey color to a dark wood depending upon where on the tree it comes from. It is a great wood for cutting boards, cabinetry and food and drink vessels.
