PEPPERWOOD

botanical name unknown

I have found all of the following to have pepperwood as one of their common names, and I have no idea which of them are represented on this page. Also, there are about as many more species that have peppertree as one of their common names and there could be further confusion with them.

Cinnamomum baileyanum
Cinnamomum laubatii
Drimys axillaris
Drimys colorata
Umbellularia californica
Zanthoxylum clava-herculis

This sheet of South American pepperwood burl veneer was loaned to me by John Koehn whom I thank for this and other contributions to the site.
