Rubber wood is used in plantations in Java for the production of natural rubber for further processing. After 30 years of productive life the trees are cut and replaced by new seedlings. Those old trees can than be used to produce engineered flooring, decking and building components.
A newly developed 11 layer decking plank now comes with a 10 year warranty and is resistant to termites, wood rod and also does not cup or split. Joists are made from the same material.
