International Veneer Shipment Limitations
We support the protection of endangered trees and respect sustainable harvesting of all forest land.

US Fish and Wildlife

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) works with more than 180 countries to protect rare species of trees from illegal harvesting. Each country has a government agency that helps enforce the rules and guidelines set forth by CITES. In the US, that agency is the Fish and Wildlife portion of the Department of the Interior. This department works inconjunction with CITES to regulate the import and export of endangered species in and out of the USA.

In observance of the laws set forth by our government, our website has special coding that will halt the checkout process if a restricted species is being shipped out of the US.

To comply with regulations, we will not ship the following veneers out of the USA.

  • Bolivian Rosewood* (Santos Rosewood, Pau Ferro)
  • Brazilian Rosewood
  • Bubinga
  • Chinese Fir
  • Cocobolo
  • East Indian Rosewood
  • Honduran Rosewood
  • Mahogany
  • Spanish Cedar
  • Tamo Ash (including Japanese Sen)

* There is much confusion over the CITES restrictions on Bolivian Rosewood. We do not believe it is subject to strict export control but our customers are finding huge challenges upon import, and because of this we no longer ship this species out of the country.

Additional Shipping Limitations

Paperbacked and two-ply veneers shipping to Canada are shipped via USPS only.

All Other Countries
We can not ship paperbacked and two-ply veneers internationally.
