And in the Eastern and Southern African areas you find wide open plains which are also home to some very exciting species of woods.
In the rainforest regions of Central West Africa is where you will find some of the largest trees. This area is home to some popular species such as Ebony, African Mahogany and Sapele. This was also the home of the famous Bubinga tree.
