Okoume is a type of hardwood tree that is native to Africa, particularly in the central and western regions of the continent. It is known for its lightweight and straight grain, which makes it a popular choice for use in plywood, furniture, and boat-building.

Okoume plywood, in particular, is highly sought after in the marine industry for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio and resistance to rot and moisture. It is often used to build boats, yachts, and other watercraft.

In addition to its use in plywood and boat-building, Okoume hardwood is also used in the production of furniture, cabinetry, and decorative veneers. It is considered a commercial hardwood due to its availability and relatively affordable price compared to some other hardwood species.

Okoume is typically harvested from sustainably managed forests and is considered a renewable resource. However, as with any timber product, it is important to source it from reputable suppliers who prioritise sustainability and responsible forestry practices.
