Vitex (Community Based Logging)
Community-based logging is an approach where the local communities and villages mill the timber themselves. The bonuses of this method are less impact from heavy machinery and more money being returned to the local economy. Vitex is a durable timber from the Solomon Islands that bleeds less than Kwila. However, it is shorter and generally, comes in 1.8 to 3.6M lengths with an average of 2.4M.
This species is very durable and commonly used across North America for decking. Grown on the West Coast of Alaska and Canada in responsibly managed forests it is more ecologically friendly than tropical timbers. It is currently available in Dressing Grade which allows more defects, mainly sound, and intergrown knots.
