Woods of the World

Submitted by on December 26, 2012 – 8:23 amNo Comment

The Woods of the World permanent exhibit consists of 178 unique woods from all parts of the globe. It hangs from the walls and ceiling near the north entrance of Lyman Plant House of the Botanic Garden of Smith College, 16 College Lane, Northampton, Massachusetts (map).

The wood samples on display have a clear protective finish but are not stained. Aging will change the colors over time.

They range from Abies concolor (white fir) to Zygia racemosa (marblewood). A complete list of the wood samples is available online.
