Developed between Weyerhaeuser and Aracruz Produitos De Madeira, S.A., Lyptus® hardwood is available in a full spectrum of industrial wood products, including lumber, plywood, veneer, back and flitch veneer, edge banding and solid and engineered flooring. Lyptus® hardwood is ideal for  industrial manufacturers as well as architects and builders who are looking for high-quality, hardwood lumber.

Lyptus® premium-grade products are ideally suited for flooring, cabinets, architectural millwork, residential and commercial furniture, and indoor paneling. Lyptus® flooring features a beautiful grain making it a versatile hardwood that takes a wide range of stains and finishes evenly such as: walnut, cherry, mahogany or maple - depending on the finish material used.


The superior quality, remarkable beauty and dependable supply make it an ideal hardwood for diverse high-end applications. This new premium hardwood is also winning accolades from manufacturers who prefer to use an environmentally responsible hardwood that comes from a renewable resource.

Lyptus® lumber comes from a Eucalyptus hybrid grown on plantations. One-third of the area is kept in native vegetation to help maintain elements of the natural ecosystem. After the first harvest, Eucalyptus trees are grown from the stump or root structure of the prior generation of trees, minimizing disturbance of the land-and making Lyptus® products a smart choice.


This high-quality hardwood lumber is now available in commercial volumes, and is the result of carefully selected natural hybrids and world-class technology. These important factors ensure that Lyptus® lumber has a rich color, enduring strength and continued availability for its various end-use applications. Moreover, industrial tests carried out in Europe and the United States have proven that Lyptus® products can be processed with the same tools and finishing as other hardwoods normally used in the production of furniture and floorings.
