Sapele Pommele, Macore Pommele
From Nigeria to Zaire, especially frequently in East Gabon; grows in tropical rain forests. It is one of the biggest trees of the West African rain forests with heights of up to 50 m and diametres from 70 to 200 cm. The Pommele development is relatively rare, therefore, the good veneer qualities are much sought after
"Moabi Pommele is used for exclusive interior design. As the figure can extremely differ - from very coarse to fine, from a very regular to an irregular figure - almost every log is a special unicum. Moabi Pommele is in demand in the USA, Great Britain and in the entire Asian area. Generally, Moabi Pommele- similar to Sapeli Pommele - is produced in the staylog operation to get the best possible Pommele effect."
