A tough, durable timber, Greenheart is one of the most in-demand tropical hardwoods for civil and marine projects worldwide. At EcoChoice, we source FSC-certified Greenheart for all for durable marine applications such as fenders and groynes. Build sustainable constructions designed to stand the test of time with a timber supplier on which you can rely.

What Is Greenheart?

Greenheart is a timber species that originates from South America. This popular hardwood can vary greatly in colour, coming in hues including yellow, gold, green, brown and black, with a straight interlocked grain and even texture. It is an incredibly durable timber, with a high resistance to rot and fungal or insect attack, making it ideal for outdoor and marine use.

The wood also boasts fantastic shock absorption, handling strong impacts with ease. If you are on the hunt for a hard-wearing timber species, Greenheart will be high on our list of recommendations.

Greenheart Timber Uses

Greenheart can be used for a variety of applications, including:

  • Bridges
  • Groynes
  • Decking
  • Boats
  • Marine ports/piers
  • Fenders
  • Retaining walls

It is important to note, though, that because of its density, Greenheart can be tricky to work with if you are not used to constructing with very hard and heavy timber. However, our team at EcoChoice will ensure your Greenheart is graded, re-sawn and profiled to your specifications, and we can also pre-drill your timber for quick and easy installation.

Recycled Greenheart Timber

At EcoChoice, we value high-quality timber and sustainability. That is why our Greenheart piles and planks are either recycled, sourced from demolition sites and reworked for your project or sourced from FSC certified source forests.

Giving older Greenheart a new lease of life is the easiest way to protect existing tropical forests and drastically reduce the carbon footprint of your project. With FSC certification, too, you can be sure you are doing your part to protect our planet’s valuable ecosystems when you choose Greenheart from EcoChoice.

We will ensure each plank of Greenheart is up to scratch before delivery, that the re-sawing and grading meet our high standards of quality. As a result of the recycled nature of this product, bolt holes and other aesthetic features are likely to be present. For our clients, this adds to the charm of the timber and helps them to create unique, eco-friendly constructions – including several designs of benches and other street furniture seen in open public spaces.

Delivered Straight to Your Site

When working on a project, we know your schedules are tight. That is why we will deliver your Greenheart timber straight to your site at a time which suits you, and it will be ready to install on the same day. For smooth, hassle-free timber deliveries, EcoChoice has you covered.
