Exotic hardwoods are expensive and not easily available to purchase like the ordinary softwood lumber you can find in hardware stores. Hardwood suppliers all over the world rely on internet marketing to reach potential buyers who are willing to import hard-to-find wood materials such as the endangered Lignum Vitae (Guaiacum officinale) or the uniquely patterned Snake wood (Brosimumguianensis).
The price of hardwood is dictated by the demands of the housing and industrial sector.The price may vary and change with the prevailing economic standard and the changing requirements of the end user. The needs of overseas wood manufacturers have changed over the years with more preference to raw logs than the finished products. Raw logs are cheaper than the precut and saw-milled lumber. Government tariffs also play a big factor in the prices of import and export of exotic wood.
