Thuya wood is a rare exotic wood with a pine scented aroma. The conifer tree is harvested not by its trunk or branches but from the actual roots and new growth. They are around 70 years old before they are cut. Even today oil is extracted and is used in aromatherapy.
Thuya wood can be used to make all kinds of things just like most woods, but it has a unique burr grain which makes it extremely desirable. It's rarity is because thuya is exclusive to Morocco, Africa. The people who live in Morocco, make money by either fishing or selling thuya wood.
