Guide to the Properties and Uses of Southern African Wood

Authors: Stephanie Dyer, Barry James and Danielle James
Published by Briza Publications

There are many books dealing with tree species found in southern Africa, but very few of them focus on the properties of the wood as this one does. It covers 140 species of trees, 134 of which are indigenous to southern Africa.

The info presented includes where the trees grow, practical tips on working with the wood, detailed accounts of wood properties and identification, plus comments from wood users themselves. It includes a fascinating history of wood use in South Africa from indigenous people to the early settlers, as well as harvesting and sawmilling info.

It’s a reference book AND a nice-and-easy-to-read coffee table book full of beautiful photos with hard cover.
