Roble, a superior sustainable wood.

In 2011 Alexander Rose introduced a comprehensive collection of sustainable FSC Roble hardwood furtniture, grown in Eastern Bolivia's dry forest. With over five million acres of FSC certified forest under management, Bolivia is the world’s leader in sustainable management of natural tropical forest. Within the Chiquitania Forest Reserve Alexander Rose's Roble supplies come from their parent company’s estate of two million acres.

Roble comes from a dry forest, as opposed to a wet forest, and so the trees grow very slowly. The dry forests are ideal for harvesting strong and long lasting wood; therefore it is a strong and dense hardwood with high durability. It is an attractive, light yellow coloured wood when new, until the sun gracefully transforms it to a mature, elegant silver grey patina if left untreated. It has a smooth lustre and texture with a closely interlocked grain. Roble has excellent machining and turning qualities, finishes and polishes well. It has a durability of up to 25 years. Its strength is similar to Teak and Oak. Alexander Rose's water-based Protector and/or Timber Treatment is recommended to treat Roble furniture.

Roble Wood Properties

Timber Care
Alexander Rose manufactures garden furniture which will last for many years. Over time, as part of the natural weathering process, cracks and splits will appear in the wood particularly on the end grain and to a lesser extent on the surface. The drier the wood, the more cracks will appear due to the evaporation of natural oils and minerals in the wood from exposure to the elements. As with most hardwoods, this is a normal characteristic for any timber which remains outdoors. The timber furniture is designed with this in mind and its strength and durability will remain unaffected. Wooden furniture can be treated with Alexander Rose's specially formulated care products to give a beautiful rich finish and enhance the look of the wood. Please see the Alexander Rose Timber Treatment page here to find the appropriate timber treatment for your furniture. Alternatively it can be left to turn a mellow silver grey, and should be cleaned occasionally with soapy water.
