Many people know acacia wood as “thorntree,” “whistling thorn,” or “wattle.” It’s believed that the acacia has been around for more than 20 million years. It’s a sustainable wood because once cut, another one can be planted, and the tree’s rapid growth decreases the likelihood of running out of them. Many people purchase items made of acacia wood for this reason. It is also heavy, strong, and resistant to wear and tear. Once you see the beauty of the wood grains, and the sturdiness of the wood, you’ll realize the value.
