  1. There’s always been talk of this in PNG, but no one it seems has bothered to take a serious business interest in cocowood.

    Judging by the pictures you’ve taken looks like the work of Fijian company, Pacific Green. Here’s a little write up on them and their experiences with developing cocowood products:

  2. Emmanuel check out the work of Dylup Timber Products based on the North Coast Road 70 km’s out of Madang. They have been producing furniture out of coconut, flooring and parquetry. The problem is that the 3 big banks in PNG believe it to be a “greenfields” operation and are too visionless to put any money behind it, and the government is not promoting it. The Australians however, have spent $520,000 for the last couple of years so that they can buy our logs cheap and downstream process them.

  3. The furniture is all very interesting. I never would have thought that furniture made from cocowood.
    But I’ve often liked to eat coconut. ^^
    It will try to buy some for my home.
    Thank you for your photographs.

  4. there is state in india called “kerala” where we make use of coconut trees for all our furniture use for several years,but not in vast volume
