Peroba, Inc. has an extensive national and global network for sourcing domestic and tropical reclaimed woods. We specialize in FSC certified reclaimed Peroba Rosa hardwood (Species: Aspidosperma spp) from South America. Peroba Rosa has been on the red list (environmental conservation list) and has not legally been harvested since the 1950s. All of our reclaimed products have been certified to be 70-150 years old.
Peroba’s reclaimed wood products have been through decades of expansion and contraction due to harsh tropical conditions which makes it more stable than newly harvested wood. Peroba Rosa is also highly resistant to decay caused by fungi and insects.
Peroba products offer both aesthetic and environmental advantages. Here is Michael Reid from PRS Guitars talking about using reclaimed Peroba Rosa for his guitars:
