Lyptus is an eco-friendly hardwood hybrid, grown in the heart of what was
Brazil's devastated forest lands. Derived from the cross breeding of the
Eucalyptus Grandis and the Eucalyptus Urophylla, this hybrid, interspersed
with reintroduced indigenous trees, was created to preserve the region's
already depleted native ecosytem. Whats interesting is the tree's ability
to quickly reproduce saplings from the very stump after it's first
harvesting without the need for replanting. Thriving on carefully managed
plantations in Brazil, this eucalyptus hybrid is harvested after about 15
years as compared to 70-80 years required by other premium hardwoods to
mature. A plantation can produce four crops of Lyptus in the time it takes
a mahogony tree to mature. The volume of wood produced on the Lyptus
plantations is 30 times greater than that of other Brazilian forests.
