Almond Tree

Almond Tree (Prunus dulcis) ©Manfred HeydeThe almond tree (Prunus dulcis) is one of the oldest plants to be cultivated by humankind, going back at least 4,000 years. It is, of course, used for its fruit, oil, and resin and is primarily grown in the Mediterranean (Mallorca) or California. Each year, countless colonies of bees in the US migrate to California to pollinate the almond blossoms.
The wood is hard, heavy, and unfortunately very prone to cracking. Once dried, it is stable. Large pieces are therefore extremely rare.


Find the right wood by appearance!
Our wood atlas makes it significantly easier to find the right wood for your projects.
But, as you know, wood is a natural product and what us shown here is only
a sample and the actual piece may vary in color and pattern.

Tip: Use the left and right arrows to navigate; to select the wood currently show, click on the link below the image. The wood atlas is by no means exhaustive and is constantly being expanded. But, on the whole, almost all the woods we have in stock are shown.
