Roatan Wood Carving
Common Hardwood Trees are, varieties of tropical red wood better known as Mahogany, Tropical Oaks (their thick bark supports bromeliads and orchids), Evergreen Palms (Arecaceae), and Bursera trees which are known on the island of Roatan as the Gumbo Limbo Tree and the Elephant Tree for its water swollen trunk. Bursera trees have a distinctive smooth reddish peeling bark. The wood has a distinct odor when carved known to us as Frankincense. Our own Gumbalimba Park sports many of these massive trees here in Roatan. The older the wood, the better it is for carving. It has had more time to dry out and twist into its final shape before carving , says Melvin. Hibiscus Trees are also interesting to carve and create little creatures with. They are known as the Queen of the Tropics for their lovely flowers. Their sap is used for dyes and resin.
