Tali, sometimes called Sasswood (formal name: Erythrophleum suaveolens), is a plentiful and sustainable wood from Central and West Africa.

Tali Decking is a durable, stable, long-lasting outdoor decking product imported from Africa. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to Ipe and Cumari and is the preferred decking choice in many European countries.

Tali has an appealing mahogany-like grain character. The structure of the wood is very uniform without any distinctive markings.

This beautiful and abundant wood is harvested using responsible forest practices as it is one of the few decking hardwoods to carry FSC certification.
