Family: Lauraceae | Synonym: Camphora officinarum Nees ex Steud
The camphor is an evergreen tree with a dense, rounded canopy, a massive trunk and camphor-scented leaves.
WHERE ARE THEY FOUND?
The tree is declared an invader in South Africa and originates from east Asia. It was introduced into South Africa in the 1700s as an ornamental tree. In 1942, five trees planted in the 1700s were proclaimed national monuments.
The medium-density wood is mostly used for light construction such as furniture, cabinets, decorative pieces and chests. Due to the large size of the tree trunk, it is possible to work with big boards for larger items such as benches and servers.
It is a pleasant wood to work with and has a lovely aroma, but the sawdust can be toxic!
