Rubberwood is a hardwood harvested from rubber trees, which are tapped to to collect their sap, otherwise known as latex. These trees can be tapped for 25-30 years before they lose their ability to product latex. Once they’re no longer useful to create rubber, the trees are cut down to make way for new trees. To prevent these trees from being burned or going to waste, the wood can be kiln dried and formed into durable items like toys or furniture. Creating items out of rubberwood is a creative way to utilize a common byproduct of the latex industry.
