About acacia

Robinia (robinia pseudoacacia) also called black locust or false acacia, is a deciduous tree, which originates from Northern America. Today, however, it also grows in Central- and Southern Europe, particularly in Hungary.

The tree grows up to 30 m and gets white and fragrant blossoms. The branches get short and strong thorns. The bark is dark brown and chapped.

The environmentally friendly robinia wood will be used untreated for example parquet flooring, shipbuilding and of course for our cooperage merchandise. It is fungus-, pest- and weather resistant and durable in water.
In addition, the durable wood is flexible, firm and extremely hard at the same time. It is therefore more durable than oak, since it remains stable for a long time even without chemical preservation treatment when used outdoors.
