Canarywood are woods harvested from trees in the Centrolobium family. They are a tall fast growing tree from Central America that is prized for its stability and working qualities. 

Sustainability: Not listed as endangered or threatened, species in the Centrolobium family grow rapidly and readily germinate and seed in the wild with a near 100% germination rate for falling ripe seeds. They are an excellent pioneer plant for regrowing forests as they provide shelter for other tree species to back fill in around them. It should be noted that they are harvested wild and not a farmed resource.
