Sustainable Harvested Ipe

You can also donate to companies that directly deal with Ipe. Also, know Ipe Woods USA makes every attempt to verify our wood is a sustainable harvest.

We know people get very concerned with saving the rainforest. We are too, we love trees and air! Before contacting us with concerns of deforestation caused by logging we urge you to educate yourself on the main causes of deforestation. Here is a great article published at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. We are yet to see the study by a reputable source showing the certification helps in any way. Placing a stamp on lumber is not preventing deforestation. Buying from a company that claims to be certified but still sells non-certified does not make much sense to us. We will continue to only work with companies that have a clean record of sustainable harvesting. But we do not participate in programs that gather a lot of money, pay a lot of people and are not proven to be effective.

About Ipe Woods USA
The company was named “Ipe” because that should really be the first lumber option when using lumber outdoors. While Ipe decking is not the only option we offer, from a quality, longevity and numbers standpoint it really is the wood you should choose for your customers or for yourself. The name of the company reflects our first choice for decking. Sometimes Ipe will not fit into you or a customers budget or for aesthetic reasons people choose other woods. But any contractor that really knows wood should at least be bringing Ipe to their customer’s attention if they are truly an expert. Our company is committed to providing the highest quality lumber and the highest quality species of woods in the world. If you are a direct customer or contractor looking for more information on Ipe please read our fact section and watch our videos. We love talking about Ipe and all of its benefits so also do not hesitate to call us.
Protecting Yourself Against Shady Lumber Dealers and Brokers
Watch out for Misinformation
There is a lot of misinformation that surrounds the wood buying industry. Some companies promote things to make you think that they are the only ones that sell sustainably sourced Ipe. But many companies including ourselves, make every effort to ensure our Ipe is sourced responsibly. No company we know of will guarantee this by the way. If they say they will you better get it in writing.
Some companies will tell you that they are the mill. While at the same time they hire other mills to mill their boards.
We could continue and go down the list. What we want you to know is with Ipe Woods USA you will get:

About Domestic and Exotic Hardwoods
The truth is unless you are in the wood industry it is nearly impossible to keep up with all the different types of exotic hardwood decking materials available and their characteristics. There are thousands of different types of wood sold. Ipe Woods USA sells over 30 types of wood. But we truly believe Ipe to be the best decking option, that you can not go wrong with. So what makes one hardwood better than another?
When we think about choosing a material for our deck the first thing we want is for that deck to last. Some types of wood are better suited for outdoor applications and will last longer. The truth is that Ipe does last longer than any other type of wood in this category. Even with no treatment, the wood can last over 75+ years. This makes it the best decking material for longevity. Even the closest comparisons are half the life of this. Making it a once a lifetime purchase for most people.
2. Resistance to natural elements
If you want that deck to keep looking good you have to ask yourself what wood has a class A fire rating is so dense that it is resistant to checking, rot, bugs, splinters, decay, and mold? No other wood will be able to resist natural elements, as well as Ipe, does. Paying the little bit extra for Ipe is almost like an insurance policy against all of these elements that seek to destroy your deck.
Ipe does not require annual maintenance unless you are wanting to keep it a dark brown. Making the annual cost $0. Even synthetic decks require maintenance. There is no material that is lower maintenance than Ipe. If you decide to let it go grey and change your mind, its nothing a light layer of sanding and oil will not fix.
