A Iroko tree

Botanically known as ‘Chlorophora Excelsa or Chlorophora Regia’, Iroko is widely distributed in Africa, ranging from the west of Sierra Leone, Senegal and Ghana, extending east-bound to Tanzania and Uganda.

Visibly, it is distinguishable by appearance with a golden yellow colour, though the colour tends to darken over time. Iroko has a medium to coarse texture with an interlocked grain.

Naturally, it has been compared to teak, sharing similar robust qualities and excellent strength properties.


We find that Iroko works quite well. It machines, screws and glues comfortably, though we always have a dust mask or two to hand! Iroko retains exceptional adhesive properties and finishes excellently.

You will find that we use Iroko primarily for external joinery products including decking and staircases.
