  • Buxus sempervirens - BOXWOOD (EUROPEAN)
    Boxwood, slow-grown, evergreen, dense timbered tree has been used widely as hedging shrub in formal gardens for centuries. Native to many parts of Europe, it was and remains the timber of choice for early woodwind and many other historic instruments needing very hard parts. Running out in parts of its range, it was cut in vast quantities for industrial purposes. Gone for bobbins, not forgotten, SoundWood Links is engaged in developing a wood to grow a few acres more for early woodwind. See our current projects section, click here to download our newsletter The Box Wood Log or contribute your views on Europe's hardest hardwood.

  • Cytisus scoparius - BROOM
    Also known as Scotch or Bissom broom, could this straight stemmed shrub ever provide a set of Plantagenet pipes? 64 rings per inch of hard, heavy timber results from this upright bush's stems. All observations welcome. Please post any contributions with one of the following phrases in the subject header - musical, non-musical, qualities, availability, volume used, recycling, location, conservation, cultural, or misc.
