Abbreviation: ROB, Din4076 Part1
Botanical name: robinia pseudoacacia L.
Other name: false acacia.
The Robinia tree was introduced to France at the beginning of the 17th century by Jean Robin, the court gardener in Paris. Robinia was introduced because of its beauty to be used as ornamental trees. Their commercial properties were only discovered later.
Robinia is the only wood that is categorised in resistance class 1 (DIN EN 350-2) compared to oak 2 and pine 4. Hence robinia can be used for outdoor structures without protective treatment, making it a great alternative to tropical woods. It is very heavy and considerably more solid than oak.
