Sal Wood is the name given to wood that comes from sal trees. Compared to Teak, it is less expensive. The straight and cylindrical shape of Sal trees allows them to reach greater heights. We can therefore extract good wood from longer lengths.
Sal wood is used for tool handles, inside door and window frames, etc.
Compared to Teak wood, it is not as hard, hence termite control is necessary. Although they are 30–40% heavier than teak, it is 20% less hard.
