Tigerwood gets its name from its visual elements; a golden hue with dark streaks that run throughout, similar to the fur of a tiger. The hardwood is harvested from the timber tree scientifically classified as Astronium fraxinifolium, otherwise known as tigerwood, Brazilian Koa, locustwood, kingwood, or zebrawood. These trees are common in South America, primarily found in the Amazon and Atlantic forests of Brazil.
