Eucalyptus wood

Galicia has 40% of the production of eucalyptus wood, which is mostly used for paper pulp, manufacturing of posts, boards, plywood and sawdust.

This wood is our main speciality. We have been working with eucalyptus wood (eucalyptus globulus) since the beginning, thus achieving complete knowledge of it and, thanks to this, we can obtain high quality raw materials that other companies cannot provide. In general, eucalyptus has good density, hardness and resistance to impacts. It is also easy to bend at will, which allows us to move away from straight angles in certain uses.


We can consider pine wood to be the most used and well-known wood. Apart from its high presence, this is also due to its versatility and ease of use. It has good indexes for resistance, contraction and flexion as well as impregnability. In Galicia, we can find the pinus pinaster variety or local pine.


Oak wood: this is one of the most popular woods thanks to its high quality-price ratio. This wood has high resistance but is also very easy to use and to mould. It is also often used because of its aesthetic. Oak wood, thanks to its variety of properties, has a multitude of uses and applications, from construction to carpentry or furniture.

Ash wood: This wood is often used because of its versatility and its excellent aptitudes for bending. It is used in carpentry and cabinetmaking, in sports articles, in floors and bodywork, as it has good tenacity characteristics (the capacity to absorb deformation energy before breaking).

Walnut wood: Considered as the most select hardwood, walnut is the dark wood of choice for fine furniture, interiors and butts of firearms. It is classified as good for bending by steam. Walnut is very resistant to heartwood decay, it is one of the most durable woods.

Chestnut wood: This is a soft and lightly nervous wood, meaning, it has great dimensional stability against changes in humidity. It has several uses from carpentry to naval construction.

Olive wood: Both for its physical properties and for its beauty, olive wood is one of the favourite materials among the most cutting-edge interior designers and architects. The irregularity of its grain and the complex patterns that are created make each piece unique.

Cherry wood: This is a leafy wood of certain quality that stands out thanks to its reddish colour and characteristic grain. It’s a very decorative and elegant wood, that is why it is one of the preferred woods for the world of interior design.
