Robinia wood is one of the toughest and most valuable European timbers. It is very resistant to insects and fungi. It is also weather-resistant and almost indestructible under water.

Robinia wood used to be used primarily as firewood due to its high calorific value, but today it is mainly used for outdoor furniture or decking. Robinia is a sensible alternative to tropical woods: the wood is fine, heavy and hard, extremely durable, strong and shrinks very little. Robinia wood is also ideal for woodturning.
