Sura or Dragonwood (Terminalia oblonga) is found from Honduras to the Amazon in South American. The term “dragonwood” comes from the patterns within the wood. It is a very dense, heavy wood. The sapwood is yellow and gray while browns and grays make up the heartwood. The darker veins or bands are brown, and shades of green. The tree needs significant rainfall; at least ninety-one inches a year. It can grow at altitudes up to 3000 feet but thrives in the lowland areas. Sura can grow to almost 150 feet in height. This sura is from Costa Rica and harvested under government regulations for environmentally sustainability.
