Black Locust – Atelier Espenaer

Black Locust

In addition to the reclaimed mahogany, we will use salvaged black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), also known as Robinia or False Acacia. The tree is native to North America, but has been planted and naturalized in Europe too.  This particular board was from a tree that once stood in our very own city, Amsterdam. Thanks to the efforts of the foundation Stadshout, the wood was saved from the shredder when the tree was cut (reasons unknown).
