It has a reddish bark and heartwood. This Brazilian evergreen tree can grow up to 40 meters (125 feet) high and has a reddish bark and yellow flowers and is extensively felled in the South American rainforest, but now legislation requires distilleries to plant a new tree for each tree cut down. Rosewood has a fantastic warm and woody scent, while at the same time being both floral and fruity. The wood is used for building, French cabinet making, carving, for the production of chopsticks in Japan and of course, essential oil. Rosewood oil is rich in linalool, a chemical which can be transformed into a number of derivatives of value to the flavor and fragrance industries.
