Tajibo is also known as Ipé. Tajibo is found in humid subtropical forests such as our forest in Bolivia. The tree is described as medium-sized, attaining a height of 20 to 25m, with a trunk diameter of about 75cm.
Boles are straight to somewhat slanted and are often clear of branches to about two-thirds the total height of the tree. After treatment the wood looks brownish, with light brown variations with a beautiful grain.
Tajibo contains the substance Lapachol which you can change red when it comes in contact with ammonia. Please ask for information before you start finishing the floor. It can also cause irritations to the skin when you work with the wood.
