Artists can feel good about using products made from Lyptus Wood. A naturallyûoccurring hybrid of Eucalyptus grandis and Eucalyptus urophylla, Lyptus forests are 11 time more productive than a temperate forest. Thriving in the warm climate of Brazil, Lyptus trees are ready for harvest in as little as 14û16 years as opposed to 50û70 years in colder regions. The Lyptus plantations have been an important force in reforesting the damaged native rainforests of Brazil.
