Acacia Koa is the most prized tree of the Hawaiian Islands. Koa is indigenous to the islands and was originally used for canoes, structural lumber, and spears. The majority of today's Koa trees can be found on protected land above the 1,500 elevation. The lumber has many different colors ranging from blonde to a very rich red-brown. It can also have very beautiful figure which furniture and guitar makers look for. Koa is relatively hard yet easy to work with.

Koa Pricing

Koa is available in 4/4, 6/4, 8/4, 12/4, and sometimes 16/4 for thickness. Average widths range from 3" to 8" although we do get wider boards from time to time. Lengths range from 5' to 12' for regular lumber. We also carry Koa Slabs, so check out our Slab Page.
